-- Joy Andrews (as played by Lucy Griffiths)
What I can say about the Shahin Chandrasoma script (without spoiling too much of its -- ahem -- twist ending) is that it probably would've been better served to have had a larger cast, one fleshed out with just a few more characters. (Yes, yes, yes: I understand all too well that it was kinda/sorta designed to be this intimate three-way relationship between an A.I., its creator, and a lovely reporter.) The downside to its twist is that -- because the cast is small -- it isn't hard to see certain elements of it coming, so when the reveal takes place it may not have had quite as much dramatic impact as it could have were the characters able to hide it amongst a crowd of players.
Still, there's an efficiency to the picture -- it works 'well enough' to carry the premise and potential from start-to-finish -- and I will say that it's a shame that there hasn't been some follow-up. It ends with a definite opening to go back into the universe as created (again, trying hard to not spoil it for you, folks), one that suggests there was definitely a bit more to this story. Who knows? Maybe all involved are taking a good amount of time to venture back into these waters ... or maybe this is all she wrote, as they say. I'd be sad, were that the case, as it's ripe for another chapter the way this one winded down.
In any event, here's the film's plot summary as provided by the good people at IMDB.com:
"The world's first 'perfect' Artificial Intelligence begins to exhibit startling and unnerving emergent behavior when a reporter begins a relationship with the scientist who created it."
... or did it?
As always, thanks for reading ... and live long and prosper!
