A disturbing psychological thriller very much of our times, The Perfect Wife examines the nightmarish consequences of artificial intelligence and big tech in the most domestic and intimate of settings.
"There's something I have to explain, my love," he says, taking your hand in his. "That wasn't a dream. It was an upload."
Abbie wakes in a hospital bed with no memory of how she got there. The man by her side explains that he's her husband. He's a titan of the tech world, the founder of one of Silicon Valley's most innovative startups. He tells Abbie she's a gifted artist, a doting mother to their young son, and the perfect wife.
Five years ago, she suffered a terrible accident. Her return from the abyss is a miracle of science, a breakthrough in artificial intelligence that has taken him half a decade to achieve.
But as Abbie pieces together memories of her marriage, she begins questioning her husband's motives - and his version of events. Can she trust him when he says he wants them to be together for ever? And what really happened to her, half a decade ago?
