Jon Hamm Marjorie Prime Lois Smith

Based on Jordan Harrison's Pulitzer Prize-nominated play of the same name, MARJORIE PRIME tells the story of an elderly woman (Lois Smith) who avails herself of a service which provides holographic recreations of deceased loved ones as their survivors would like them remembered. With her health and memory failing, Marjorie begins to piece together her past with a computerized version of her deceased husband, Walter (Jon Hamm). Together with her children, played by Tim Robbins and Geena Davis, they go through their painful family history in order to give Walter an understanding of the man he once was.

"We'll grow old together, I'll just do it a little sooner than you."

The official synopsis for MARJORIE PRIME:

Eighty-six-year-old Marjorie spends her final, ailing days with a computerized version of her deceased husband. With the intent to recount their life together, Marjorie’s “Prime” relies on the information from her and her kin to develop a more complex understanding of his history. As their interactions deepen, the family begins to develop ever diverging recounts of their lives, drawn into the chance to reconstruct the often painful past.

Built around exceptional performances from a veteran cast, Marjorie Prime shines a light on an often-obscured corner in the world of artificial intelligence and its interactions with mortality. Bringing us robustly into the future, Michael Almaryeda’s poetic film forces us to face the question—If we had the opportunity, how would we choose to rebuild the past, and what would we decide to forget?

MARJORIE PRIME is set for an August 18, 2017 release.
