A philosophical deep dive into the emotional mechanics of memory and the role of technology, this poignant adaptation of the Pulitzer-shortlisted play stars Smith as Marjorie, whose dementia is slowed by the company of a digital avatar of her deceased husband (Jon Hamm). His sentient authenticity hinges on knowledge of their shared past—but divergent accounts from Marjorie, daughter Geena Davis, and son-in-law Tim Robbins, quickly reveal deep familial rifts.
