A little longer than it can bear, but it is interesting in its playing with the tech
2 June 2019 | by bob the mooSee all my reviews

Good sci-fi is about ideas, as the saying goes; and often this saying allows us to relax that what we are watching is not state of he art CGI effects but rather basic aspects but with the ideas doing the heavy lifting. So it is here; the set is a white background where we see an audition play out. Instead of real people though, it is computer generated actors (sprites) that are the focus here. The plot of the film is simple, and it is about learning technology. The main actress works wit the sprites with a strong dislike for them as a lesser being, but then working with one provides something which suggests that there may be more to them that just code and repetition.

This idea is enough to carry the film, although the way it is delivered is clever too. The use of Kirk's speech from Wrath of Khan is a nice touch, and it is used well to give the main sprite some variety and depth. The lead two female performances are also both very good - natural, engaging, and with a nice interaction that convinces that this is a real relationship. The lack of effects is nicely handled, and the film works better for being on a clean pallet. It runs a little longer than it can stand, but it works pretty well despite this.
