In the near future, a service that creates holographic projections has provided 86-year-old Marjorie with a handsome representation of her dead husband. This AI recreation feeds the story of her life back to her in case the widow, who has the beginning of Alzheimer’s disease, forgets her past.
In this intimate romance, Sundance darling Michael Almereyda excels at presenting high-concept sci-fi questions in humane and moving ways. With towering performances by Lois Smith and Jon Hamm, Marjorie Prime delivers a gripping and tender reflection on love and identity.
