“I’m Your Man” is an unexpected delight, succeeding as a romantic comedy – and as much more.” – Bill Goodykoontz, Arizona Republic

“Heartwarming, elegant, and often profound in its exploration of loneliness and human connection, I’m Your Man is exquisitely charming and smart.” – Mae Abdulbaki, ScreenRant

 

Alma (Maren Eggert) is a scientist coerced into participating in an extraordinary study in order to obtain research funds for her work. For three weeks, she must live with a humanoid robot tailored to her character and needs, whose artificial intelligence is designed to be the perfect life partner for her. Enter Tom (Dan Stevens), a machine in human form created solely to make her happy. A playfully romantic tale, I’M YOUR MAN questions what love and longing really mean in the modern age.
