An 80-something woman suffering with dementia lives with a ghost-like hologram of her late husband in this deeply moving meditation on memory and mortality. Starring Jon Hamm, Geena Davis, Tim Robbins and Lois Smith.



Set sometime in the future, a new service exists that allows people to resurrect a deceased loved one in holographic form. Customers are able to re-create them at whichever age they prefer, yet all models require a hefty amount of programming, involving daily conversations to fill in their backstory assembled from anecdotes.

Marjorie (Lois Smith) has chosen to bring back her husband, Walter (Jon Hamm), at the age at which she met him. However, her deteriorating health means that her grasp on the past is often no better than his.

Marjorie's daughter Tess (Geena Davis) is disturbed by the presence of a father facsimile while her husband, Jon (Tim Robbins), has taken it upon himself to act as the programmer, feeding him with memories to flesh out his character.

As the family learns to cope with their new old visitor, they are forced to confront the past and also the future.
