CineGrand Film: Marjorie Prime

February 13 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

$5.00

The Grand’s Weekly CineGrand series– a series of the best of the recent films, from both the Hollywood studios and independents, all playing Tuesday at 6 pm on the Coastal Eye Care Screen at The Grand in Ellsworth- continues its new Winter season on Tuesday, February 13th with a film adaptation of the one of the most haunting meditations on mortality and memory produced for the 21st Century theater. 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? With Jon Hamm, Geena Davis, Tim Robbins and Lois Smith recreating her acclaimed stage role of “Marjorie”. (2017. USA 1 hr, 39 min. Directed by Michael Almereyda. NR.) Tickets for this General Admission presentation are $5.
