A.Artificial intelligence is an American science fiction drama film released in 2001. It is directed by Steven Spielberg and based on “super toys last all summer long” Brian Aldiss.
A robotic boy, David is adopted by cybernetics employee, and his wife thought he gradually becomes their child, and they develop a feeling of human love for an inhuman. He is programmed to love like humans, but still, he is not accepted by humans or machines. A series of unexpected events make his life impossible, & David embarks on a journey to discover where he truly belongs. One cannot scale down how such an intricate plot could be executed by superb perfection. Well, it’s a true masterpiece but unfortunately underrated. This movie is a perfect combination of technology, humor, eternal love, infinite hope, tragedy, and deep heartbreaks.

YOU SAY VIRTUAL EMOTIONS?
A different movie from Spielberg’s other notable work like Jurassic Park and it proves his excellent directorial skills. This is honestly like the saddest & great heartfelt story I’ve ever seen & I couldn’t stop crying. David’s quest to find the blue fairy to turn him into a real boy is so touching and especially the part where he got his wish to spend a whole day with his mother made me cry a lot. He waited 2000 years to hear “I love you” from his mother. Are we so-called social animal (human) ever going to wait this long for our mother’s love? NO,right.
It just amazes me how, as humans, we forget child life and innocence. I do wish the compassion he felt was something resonates in life for everyone. You say virtual feelings, but this is beyond any emotion, and if this is not real, I don’t know what is.
