A.I. Artificial Intelligence
DIRECTOR: STEVEN SPIELBERG
CAST: HALEY JOEL OSMENT, JUDE LAW, FRANCES O'CONNOR
The seemingly disparate sensibilities of Spielberg and Stanley Kubrick, who left this science-fiction Pinnochio story unrealized at the time of his death, here achieve an unexpected harmony. Haley Joel Osment plays a robot child abandoned by his adopted parents to the cruel (if astonishingly realized) outside world, in a film that finds Spielberg at his most challenging and most poignant.
