A philosophical deep dive into the emotional mechanics of memory and the role of technology, this poignant adaptation of the Pulitzer-shortlisted play stars Lois Smith as Marjorie, a woman whose dementia is slowed by the company of a digital avatar of her deceased husband (Jon Hamm). His sentient authenticity hinges on knowledge of their shared past but divergent accounts from Marjorie, her skeptical daughter (Geena Davis) and son-in-law (Tim Robbins), quickly reveal deep familial rifts. Coolly lensed by Sean Price Williams and featuring an original score by Mica Levi.
