High Maintenance

Phillip Van / 09'17 / USA / 2006

Jane and Paul are having their anniversary. Neither of them really seems to be in the mood to celebrate. Conversation has grown stale. Jane tries to be seductive. Paul ignores her. Deeply frustrated, Jane comes to a decision: her marriage needs a serious update. A film about the eternal questions of love in the age of artificial intelligence.
