Sundance Film Festival winner and Cannes nominee. After Yang is a subtle, tender perspective on artificial intelligence that is a rarity for modern science fiction. Jake (Colin Farrell) and Kyra (Jodie Turner-Smith) purchase a lifelike android, Yang to give their adopted daughter Mika a sibling. The beginning of the film slowly reveals the inner tensions within the family, unfurling when Yang malfunctions and Jake is tasked with bringing his animatronic son back to life. With slow moves, [director] Kogonada produces a powerful film that runs its course with restraint, but that is not a disadvantage. Every minor emotion is performed brilliantly by the cast, providing a sentimental projection of the future that investigates grief as core to humanity. —Chicago Reader
“At the end, you may feel you’ve just seen a movie that somehow holds elusive answers to some of the bigger questions in life, even though nothing is spelled out too broadly.”—TIME Magazine
