Great premise. Great play. So-so movie. It starts well but unravels about halfway through. Lois Smith, who plays Marjorie, is tremendous. Her first feature film was East of Eden with James Dean!

This movie might be the most horrifying thing I've seen in the past 40 years. Not for anything scary in it, just because I can see this becoming our future.

A loved one dies, you don't deal with your grief, you get a "Prime", program it to be like your loved one and cling to the past.

In this movie a family becomes so dependent on this delusion they go through several "Primes" becoming more withdrawn from social interaction with each "Prime".

The "Primes" never seem to get more human. No emotions. No arguments. No change in tone. Just the same computer drone. And people accept this as a replacement for a lost loved one?

A truly scary glimpse into the future. Is this what a world of social media and self gratification is leading humans into?
