Movie Details

Spike Jonze wrote and directed this short comedy-drama about the power of love to transform even the least likely individuals. In a future society, humans and robots live side by side, though the machines are clearly second-class citizens. Sheldon (Andrew Garfield) is a robotic librarian who leads an isolated existence until he meets Francesca (Sienna Guillory), a free-spirited female robot who displays a sense of daring and personal freedom Sheldon lacks. Sheldon becomes deeply infatuated with Francesca, and she teaches him that living can be more than just existence. However, as Sheldon begins to depend on Francesca, her physical mechanisms start to break down, and he willingly sacrifices himself in order to keep her alive. Produced under a commission from the makers of Absolut Vodka, I'm Here received its North American premiere at the 2010 Sundance Film Festival. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
