Storyline

In the near-distant future, a female romance writer is planning to write her next book in a remote mountain cabin. A friend convinces her to bring along a "companion", a nearly-human android to cook and clean. She settles on a male companion named "Geoffrey." Bored with some of Geoffrey's behavior, she tinkers with his programming -- first his personality, then his sexuality. Real trouble comes when she gives his mind access to "random data."

Superior Sci Fiction Film
5 September 2007 | by See all my reviews

Successful romantic novel writer, disillusioned with "love", retreats to the countryside for a while.

She takes with her a romantic companion, a life-like robot who can be 'programmed' at different levels.

And it is that programming and re-programming which is at the center of this drama.

First rate casting, with all the actors giving convincing and watchable performances. My only gripe is that the basic story is hardly original and seems to have been done in similar ways many times. Nonetheless the two leads are excellent and kept me viewing until the end.
