Critic Reviews for Marjorie Prime
Set in the not-too-distant future, Marjorie Prime leverages plausible computer technology to explore the very human nature of life, death, family and memory.
A gentle story that is no less profound for being so.
As a sly chamber piece, it reassures and unsettles in equal, exquisitely calibrated measure.
The exchanges feel slightly redundant at times. The stagey origins of the material surface occasionally. Minor bumps, though, in a unique psychological journey.
The haunting and allusive Marjorie Prime is a sci-fi film set in the near future but its emotional resonance is bracingly immediate.
Audience Reviews for Marjorie Prime
I expected Marjorie Prime to present me with some sort of philosophical quandary, however, I expected that quandary to relate to the standard robot stuff: Identity, humanity, what it means to be alive, that old chestnut. Instead, Marjorie Prime philosophises about memory, and beyond that, truth. Still doesn't stop it from being pretty crap though.
In a gentler future than the one's proposed by Skynet artificial intelligence has it's metaphorical hands full just trying to figure us out, much less be our friend. A quiet,sedate, adult offering with meaty chunks to chew over and meditate on, this is best perhaps enjoyed on a rainy day. Resonant and smart. Intuitive.
An often fascinating science-fiction meditation on memory and one that proves that the genre doesn't need a large budget or even special effects to be convincing. Lois Smith remains a national treasure.
