In the near future, a time of artificial intelligence: 86-year-old Marjorie (Lois Smith) - a jumble of disparate, fading memories - has a handsome new companion (Jon Hamm) that looks exactly like her deceased husband Walter. This is a Prime a holographic simulation programmed by Marjorie's daughter (Geena Davis) and her husband Jon (Tim Robbins) to feed the story of her life back to her. But as their interactions develop it becomes clear that each of them has a very complex relationship with their shared histories, with each other, and with this new technology they've invited into their home.

Thoughtful - Marjorie Prime review by JH

Spoiler Alert
01/04/2018

I found this a quiet and thoughtful play on memories, how they differ between people and form an identity.

This is Sci-Fi, given the AI hologram 'primes' the feature throughout -- an entirely believable technology -- however the tech here really just kick starts the discussion of memories between the cast of characters and how they differ in interacting with tech.

A very dialogue heavy film and quite the slow burner, but nevertheless I found myself quite engaged and the taught string-led score created a bit of hypnotic atmosphere.

You don't see a lot of films like this being made and as such I really enjoyed the refreshing take on the theme of human vs machine.

Interesting concept, but... - Marjorie Prime review by TB

.. it appeared to me that the AI holograms are every bit as as boring as their human counterparts...

Don't Bother - Marjorie Prime review by JP

Spoiler Alert
25/02/2018

Such a waste of good actors. The film starts out with an innovative plot but soon deteriorates into a very convoluted and boring story. Lois Smith, in which I think was her last film, glows, at times, as Majorie. For 50 years or more, Smith had a good career, and I was happy to see her working till the end.
