  • This futuristic comedy from director Lynn Hershman Leeson puts a funny spin on recent advancements in science and technology, namely cloning. When Rosetta Stone (Tilda Swinton), a scientist conducting biology research, has a major breakthrough and writes a paper about it, her colleagues suspect that she has already tried out her theories in real-life experiments. Unbeknownst to them, Rosetta has created a formula in her computer that combines DNA and software to make the perfect being: part-robot, part-human. She has produced three female test subjects: Ruby, Olive, and Marine (all played by Swinton) who live in the refurbished and fully computer-and-video-equipped basement of her apartment. Her clones keep her company, entertain her, and listen to her problems. Their only flaw is that they need a chemical found in sperm to survive, so Ruby is programmed to seduce human men and share the sperm with the other two. Trouble starts when Ruby transmits a computer virus to the men she seduces, crashing their "hard drives." The problem is exacerbated when Ruby falls in love with her neighbor, Sandy (Jeremy Davies). When a private detective, Dirty Dick (Karen Black), is hired by one of Rosetta's coworkers to learn the truth about her research, it becomes almost impossible to keep the clones a secret, especially as they develop their own personalities, self-will, and curiosity about the world.
