An angst-ridden boy (played by Max Records, the enfant-prodige of Spike Jonze’s Where the wild things are) seeks out for his company to escape the sadness caused by his parents’ constant fighting. Will be this cute and serviceable robot, the friend he really needs? A wonderfully executed and disconcerting tale on human relationships, loneliness and the unhealthy potential of our obsession with technology.
