“Auggie”: Artificial Intelligence romances are nothing particularly new (“Her” with Joaquin Phoenix and Scarlett Johansson covered the topic quite well). But “Auggie” — receiving a world premiere — does, too, with a sad, somber story about a recently retired man becoming overly enamored with his retirement gift, a charming, stunning AI.

It’s a strong feature-length debut from actor Matt Kane, and I suspect — given how good this film is — you’ll be hearing more about him in the future. Screenings: 3:50 p.m. March 9 at Hammer Theatre, 6 p.m. March 10, 12:15 p.m. March 12 and 7:20 p.m. March 14 at Century 20.

Myriad Pictures will commence sales at the EFM in Berlin next week on Auggie , an elevated sci-fi in the vein of Her starring A Serious Man’s Richard Kind… “We were so impressed with Matt’s direction and how he and Marc brought this unique vision to the big screen,” said Myriad chief Kirk D’Amico. “Richard Kind’s performance as the hopeless Felix is heart-wrenching and the pathos that the whole cast and crew were able to realize is simply amazing.
