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- MAD MEN, BABY DRIVER) 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 Robins, MARJORIE PRIME is based on Jordan Harrison’s Pulitzer-Nominated play, exploring memory and identity, love and loss.
“Not since Spike Jonze’s ‘Her’ has humanity’s uneasy embrace of seductive technology been given such soulful contemplation.” – The Hollywood Reporter
“Marjorie Prime is both a sophisticated chamber of drama and a captivating contemplation of time, memory and mortality.” – Screen Daily
“Could double as the best-written episode of ‘Black Mirror’ yet.” – The Film Stage
