The film that might have been Stanley Kubrick's next project is now Steven Spielberg's next project. Set in a futuristic world flooded by melted polar ice caps, A.I. depicts a society largely dependent on computers and robots ("A.I." stands for "artifical intelligence"). But at its heart, it's a latter-day Pinocchio tale about a little boy robot (Haley Joel Osment) who's designed to serve as a surrogate son but wants to be the real thing. The big question on cinephiles' minds: Which will prevail, Kubrick's cool cerebral irony or Spielberg's warm sentimental streak? Or is there room for both?
