Part of The Fabelmans +6.
An advanced prototype robot child named David (Haley Joel Osment) is programmed to show unconditional love. When his human family, unprepared for the consequences, abandons him, David embarks on a dangerous quest to become a real boy. Steven Spielberg helms this futuristic story, the brainchild of Stanley Kubrick, who died before he could bring it to the big screen.
“The most philosophical film in Kubrick's canon, the most intelligent in Spielberg's, and quite possibly the film with the most contemporary relevance that either one has made since Kubrick released DR. STRANGELOVE in 1964.” —Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader “The best fairy tale — the most disturbing, complex and intellectually challenging boy's adventure story — Mr. Spielberg has made.” —A.O. Scott, New York Times
