Movie Info

At his "early retirement" party, Felix Greystone is given a pre-release version of an Auggie, a pair of augmented reality smart glasses that project a perfectly human companion onto his world. When Felix's wife Anne gets a promotion and his daughter Grace gets serious with her boyfriend, Felix suddenly feels very alone. He opens up to his new companion, AUGGIE, and is recognized and appreciated by her. He feels the ache of loneliness dissipate. AUGGIE reawakens a passion in Felix, and to his own surprise, he begins to fall for her. In a world that feels too good to be true, it's difficult for Felix to recognize his increasing addiction to the technology, losing sight of what truly matters.

Critic Reviews for Auggie

All Critics (15) | Top Critics (3)

Even with the short running time, writer-director Matt Kane and cowriter Marc Underhill exhaust most of their ideas early. But Kind is touching throughout, as a man who just needs to feel wanted.

Auggie is purposefully grim in style and execution, moving at a snail's pace and seemingly photographed in drab shades of grey. Although its running time is a mere 81 minutes, the film seems to last forever.

It's a strong feature-length debut from actor Matt Kane, and I suspect - given how good this film is - you'll be hearing more about him in the future.

It runs out of ideas before it calls it quits.

November 9, 2019 | Rating: C+ | Full Review…

This is quite a smart, little independent film... It's sad, touching, and provocative.

October 3, 2019 | Full Review…

Tantalizingly bounces your comfort level between intimacy and voyeurism.
