Wonderful film that runs through a gambit of different relationships types in a modern lens, while focusing on how our protagonist navigates it and becoming enthralled to an AI.
Outstanding 'modern' look at love, relationships,. emotions, and technology via the lens of one writer who got attached to a AI virtual assistant working thru an impending divorce. Love it the first time I saw it, second time around is no different. It takes to you another realm of modern life and love.
