“Starring Tom Hollander alongside Dr. Easy, a medical robot voiced by Geraldine James, the short is adapted from Matthew De Abaitua’s novel The Red Men, set against a pervasive and Orwellian vision of contemporary society: surveillance, automation, biotechnology, and their implications for our humanity.
Michael (Tom Hollander) is a broken man with a gun, surrounded by armed police. A robot with a medical degree is dispatched – but can it save him?”
The short film Dr Easy is written and directed by Jason Groves, Chris Harding and Richard Kenworthy (Shynola). It’s actually a prologue for a planned feature adaptation of ‘The Red Men’.
Somehow I feel sad for this poor robot… Awesome short film, isn’t it?
