After an experiment gone wrong, A-X-L is discovered hiding alone in the desert by a kind-hearted outsider named Miles (Alex Neustaedter), who finds a way to connect with him after activating his owner-pairing technology. – rottentomatoes.comTHE WIFEIt becomes a series of heated arguments with each one acting more and more as an awakening to no longer stay devoted to a narcissist emotionally abusing her and holding her down; Glenn Close is at the top of her game. – Robert Kojder, Flickering MythCRAZY RICH ASIANSThis movie will make you fall in love with romantic comedies again.
