When Daniel's superintelligent AI, 'Counselor' (Siri on steroids), finds out that he's been dreaming about one of the girls in his virtua-class, Counselor persuades him to ask her out on a date the only way she knows how: by convincing him that if he doesn't go he will, according to statistical probabilities, kill himself. It's a tall order for a guy who hasn't left his apartment in 42 days and is more than happy to stay at home with his 2025 technology.
What resonated with me about "A Date in 2025" was the importance of human interaction. Life in Los Angeles has a tendency to be very isolating, and there is a constant temptation to turn towards technology -- whether it be through dating apps or social media. While those platforms are not innately bad, an over-reliance on them can take you away from reality in an unhealthy way. Life is all about balance. I hope people walk away from this film inspired to make the leap and take the harder path.
