Marjorie Prime: Directed by Michael Almereyda, Marjorie Prime is a film based on Jordan Harrison’s Pulitzer Prize--nominated play about an ailing 86-year-old woman’s interaction with a holographic projection of her late husband. As Marjorie’s “Prime” requires information from her and her family to develop a more complex understanding of her husband's history, each family member begins to develop ever diverging accounts of their own lives and history. With rave reviews for performances by Lois Smith, Jon Hamm, Geena Davis and Tim Robbins, the film has been also lauded for shining a light on the world of artificial intelligence and our concepts of morality. Marjorie Prime premieres on Feb. 4 7PM ET and then will be available on Ovation NOW.
