A.I. (Steven Spielberg) is in some ways the late Stanley Kubrick's last film. He bought the rights to Brian Aldiss's sci-fi short story Super-Toys Last All Summer Long over 20 years ago and, after hand-picking Spielberg to direct it, gave him thousands of storyboards and notes before he died. But not without conditions: Spielberg had to swear not to talk about the project or Kubrick would excommunicate him. Spielberg brings his own kid-friendly sensibilities to the story set in a future in which robots serve humankind. Haley Joel Osment stars as David, a very advanced prototype who's placed in the home of a couple (Sam Robards and Frances O'Connor) whose own critically ill child has been cryogenically frozen until a cure can be found. Jude Law co-stars as Gigolo Joe, a "love mecha" designed for pleasure, who introduces David to the underground world of disgruntled robots looking to rebel against their human masters. The cutting-edge special effects show the inner workings of the machines, whose flat, pulled-back skin makes them look like they've had one too many facelifts. 120 minutes. Opens June 29.
