Robin Williams stars in this sci-fi comedy drama by director Chris Columbus. In the year 2005, Richard Martin (Sam Neill) purchases a domestic android, NDR 114 (Williams) - nicknamed 'Andrew' - to act as a household servant to his family. Although a robot, Andrew possesses an individual personality and gradually begins to exhibit signs of 'humanity'. These are encouraged by Richard and his daughter, whom Andrew addresses as 'Little Miss' (Hallie Kate Eisenberg/Lindze Letherman/Embeth Davidtz), until Andrew eventually requests his freedom. Reluctantly, Richard agrees, and when Andrew is befriended by Rupert Burns (Oliver Platt), the son of the man who created him, he embarks on a quest to become truly 'human'.
