Robin Williams re-teams with 'Mrs Doubtfire' director Chris Columbus for this big-screen adaptation of Isaac Asimov's short story. In the United States of the present, Richard Martin (Sam Neill) purchases brand new domestic android NDR 114 (Williams) - nicknamed 'Andrew' - to act as a household servant to his family. Although a robot, Andrew possesses an individual personality all his own, and gradually begins to exhibit signs of 'humanity'. These are encouraged by Richard and his daughter, whom Andrew addresses as 'Little Miss', until Andrew eventually requests his freedom. Reluctantly, Richard agrees, and when Andrew is befriended by Rupert Burns (Oliver Platt), the son of the man who created him, he embarks on a quest to become truly 'human'.
Bicentennial Man is the hilarious and heart-warming story of one robot's extraordinary 200-year journey to become an ordinary man. Robin Williams gives another brilliant performance and is joined by Sam Neill and Oliver Platt in this smart, funny movie that's programmed to make the whole family feel good.
Fantastic movie. Two thumbs up!
