Description

Memories are sometimes all we have to lean on. We remember good times and bad, though it’s not uncommon to bury memories that are troubling and painful. So what if memories could be remembered for you — or forgotten for you? Such is the premise of “Marjorie Prime”.

In the near future, a time of artificial intelligence: 86-year-old Marjorie (veteran actress Lois Smith) — a jumble of disparate, fading memories — has a handsome new companion (Jon Hamm) who looks like her deceased husband and is programmed to feed the story of her life back to her.

What would we remember, and what would we forget, if given the chance?

Also starring Academy Award-winners Geena Davis and Tim Robbins, “Marjorie Prime” is based on Jordan Harrison’s Pulitzer-Nominated play, exploring memory and identity, love and loss.

“ ‘Marjorie Prime’ is both a sophisticated chamber of drama and a captivating contemplation of time, memory and mortality.”  — Screen Daily
