To wrap up the month of love, Markham at the Movies is offering a unique opportunity.
Bring your valentine to see the intriguing, award-winning film, I’m Your Man, screening on Feb. 28 at Markham Theatre. And there onscreen before the film, surprise your valentine with your message of love to them – in secret code or open declaration.
Writer-director Maria Schrader’s 21st-century sci-fi rom-com explores love, ego, loneliness and human relationships through the inquisitive eyes of a cyborg. In German with English subtitles, it stars Maren Eggert and Dan Stevens.
In order to obtain research funds for her studies, a skeptical archaeologist accepts an offer to participate in an extraordinary experiment: for three weeks, she is to live with a humanoid robot, created uniquely to make her happy.
Amusing, thought-provoking, and entertaining, this film will leave you wondering how you would react if the perfect AI partner were created for you — designed to respond to your every conscious or unconscious need.
Is the idea scandalous or intriguing? What are the ethical implications? Can this too be love in the future?
As for that billet doux – send your valentine’s message by Feb. 23 to hello@markhamatthem to ensure it gets on the big screen before the film, I’m Your Man, on the 28th. Make sure to arrive early, around 6:30 p.m.
