Marjorie Prime

NR, 98 minutes

In the near future, a time of artificial intelligence: 86-year-old Marjorie (veteran actress Lois Smith)- a jumble of disparate, fading memories- has a handsome new companion (Jon Hamm) who looks like her deceased husband and is programmed to feed the story of her life back to her. What would we remember, and what would we forget, if given the chance? Also starring Geena Davis and Tim Robbins, MARJORIE PRIME is based on Jordan Harrison’s Pulitzer-Nominated play, exploring memory and identity, love and loss. Directed by the wonderful Michael Almaryeda (Experimenter, Hamlet). (2017, Michael Almaryeda, US, 98 min, NR, DCP)
