“A.I. Artificial Intelligence” is a science fiction movie directed by Steven Spielberg and released in 2001. The film is set in a future where human-like robots are common and are used for various purposes, including household chores, companionship, and labor.
The story centers around a young robot named David, who has been designed to look and behave like a human child. He is purchased by a couple who have lost their son and want to replace him with a robot that can love them unconditionally.
As the story progresses, David becomes increasingly attached to his “mother,” but when she realizes that he is not capable of truly understanding human emotions, she abandons him in the woods. David sets out on a journey to find the Blue Fairy from the story of Pinocchio, hoping that she will turn him into a real boy and earn his mother’s love.
The film explores themes of artificial intelligence, love, and what it means to be human. It received mixed reviews upon its release but has since gained a cult following and is regarded as a thought-provoking piece of science fiction cinema.
