Plato’s Reality Machine. Written and directed by Myles Sorensen. Produced by Owen Cooper, Clifford Fields, Padmini Narumanchi, Christopher Vitale. Original music by Raymond Watts (of KMFDM). From Poison Door Productions. Color, USA, 2015, 79 minutes, unrated.
Romantic comedy-drama. Starring Trieste Kelly Dunn (who plays Deputy Kelly on the Cinemax series Banshee), Carolina Bartczak (a star on Canadian television), Ed Renninger, Doug Roland, Heather Shisler and Nathan Spiteri. Plato’s Reality Machine is a Chekhovian romantic comedy with a dash of techno/sci-fi thrown in for good measure. The narrative depicts the interweaving affairs of six attractive New Yorkers in their late 20s/early 30s who achieve physical intimacy quickly while having difficulty attaining enduring emotional attachments. The focus is on Charles, who has an obsession with a futuristic video game that features a seductive female raygun-toting space soldier, Sophia. But his other five human associates are all playing games of their own. One of Charles’ lovers, the dazzling Maggie, finds enough presence of mind to (finally) want a truly adult relationship. Will Charles be able to win this very special woman back, or will he retreat to the video world of outer space forever?
