Comedy drama
There's a big difference between commenting on the zeitgeist and simply acknowledging it, as this featherweight independent comedy demonstrates. Several months pregnant, a self-proclaimed "technologist" (for reasons never explained, she likes to talk to electronic devices) makes a road trip to reunite with her estranged mother, who's joined a technology-free retreat in the Nevada desert. The young woman occasionally stops strangers on the street and asks them whether technology has improved people's lives, a vague question that elicits equally vague responses. Watchable in the way week-old bread might be considered edible, this 2011 film offers little of value but fills time inoffensively. Annie J. Howell and Lisa Robinson directed their own script.
