We are both flattered and humbled by the recent article on Mercury News, where Randy Myers, president of the San Francisco Film Critics Circle, mentioned AUGGIE as one of 15 films you shouldn’t miss at Cinequest. We are very excited to be among a list of such amazing creative talent.

“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. Richard Kind (“A Serious Man”) brings acting gravitas to this cautionary peek into the fragileness of the male ego. 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.
