You’ll need to pay close attention to this ghostly sci-fi drama which will test your memory as well as your patience.
Lois Smith plays 85-year-old widow of failing health Marjorie who has a computer programme, possessed of artificial intelligence, to keep her company.
She has directed it to adopt the personality of her husband as she remembers him.
And having not yet lost her marbles, she insists it projects itself in hologram form as the handsome young version of her man, when he looked like Jon Hamm from TV’S Mad Men.
With a cast including Geena Davis and Tim Robbins, the performances are as tasteful and highly polished as the decor in Marjorie’s elegant and expensive Los Angeles beach-front home.
Moving at a hypnotic pace, the stage-bound script toys with time and questions the relationship between thought and identity, often making us feel as if we’re eavesdropping on someone’s deeply personal and very expensive therapy.
