Kimi starring Zoe Kravitz
Can’t really trust those home devices anyways. With more households adopting home devices, it’s a wonder how much these devices are listening and recording our every move and conversation. In Kimi, this chase thriller reaffirms the fact that the devices are listening—to the point that it can be a witness to something more diabolical.
The film stars Zoe Kravitz (The Batman), Byron Bowers (No Sudden Move), Jaime Camil (Schmigadoon), Erika Christensen (Traffic), Derek DelGaudio (Derek DelGaudio’s In & Of Itself), Robin Givens (Riverdale), Charles Halford (Logan Lucky), Devin Retray (Side Effects), Jacob Vargas (The 33), with Rita Wilson (Mamma Mia!).
Steven Soderbergh (No Sudden Move) directed the movie from the script written by David Koepp.

The storyline takes place during the COVID-19 pandemic in Seattle with an agoraphobic tech worker who discovers a violent crime occurs in the data stream with someone’s home device. In the process of reporting the crime, she is met with doubts about her stories to her superiors. To report the truth, she must venture out of her apartment into the city streets as chaos ensues with protestors and homelessness.
Steven Soderbergh directs good movies. There’s the irony that a pandemic-themed film won’t see the light of day in theaters despite most theaters being reopened this year. Now it is back-to-back film releases directly to HBO Max for Soderbergh. However, the storyline has been played over and over again over home device paranoia.
Kimi streams exclusively on HBO Max beginning February 10.
