NotesSteve Carroll writes: "In this Kubrick/Spielberg joint production, Haley Joel Osment plays David, a robot boy, and the state-of-the-art in robot technologies. He comes to live with a couple (Sam Robards & Frances O'Connor) whose own son Martin (Jake Thomas) has been in a coma for quite a few years. Soon after David comes to live with them, their real son awakens from the coma. After he comes home, he needs to use very high-tech leg braces to walk. They are almost like robot braces that probably supply a minute electrical charge to Martin's muscles to allow him to walk."
