A.I. Artificial Intelligence (2001 AI Movie)
A.I. Artificial Intelligence (or simply A.I.) is a 2001 American science fiction drama film written and directed by Steven Spielberg and based on a story by Ian Watson and the 1969 short story "Supertoys Last All Summer Long" by Brian Aldiss. It stars Haley Joel Osment, Jude Law, Frances O'Connor, Brendan Gleeson, and William Hurt. Set in a futuristic post-climate change society, A.I. tells the story of David (Osment), a childlike android uniquely programmed with the ability to love.
Development of A.I. originally began with producer-director Stanley Kubrick, after he acquired the rights to Aldiss's story in the early 1970s. In 1995, Kubrick handed A.I. to Spielberg, but the film did not gain momentum until Kubrick's death in 1999.
The film divided critics, with the overall balance being positive.
