Storyline

The brilliant inventor Ray Kurzweil creates a computer avatar named Ramona (Pauley Perrette). He raises her like a modern-day Pinocchio, and she gradually acquires consciousness. Ramona detects a secret attempt by microscopic robots to destroy the world, but her warnings are ignored by everyone because she is not recognized as a person. Her computerized nature lets her stop the robot attack but lands her in trouble with the law. Written by Anonymous

this film will get you thinking
10 March 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I saw this film quite legally (as I know it has yet to be released) in a pre final form at the Breckenridge Film Festival. Being a fan of the director I went not expecting it to be a deep and disturbing drama documentary that I have not stopped talking about. I was unaware of Raymond Kurzweil's work, but have now ordered two of his books. The whole drama of a robot played by Pauley Perrette (inspired casting) is something I guess if we do not have to consider our children will. This film should not be missed. Mr Kurzweil introduced the film explaining how we are almost there in many respects. Perrette was perfect, just quirky enough to be non human, but certainly convincing enough as one to make you be fully on her side. It just goes to show that if we make machines, like we make our children, there is a responsibility there too.
