Time Out says

Williams dons a robot suit for this sentimental sci-fi family epic based on the writings of Isaac Asimov. It's 2005, and 'Sir' (Neill) has just taken delivery of Andrew, a chromium butler-cum-nanny, with ideas above his station. When Andrew displays simple human emotions, Sir teaches him all about the human condition, thus setting off a chain of events spanning 200 years: Andrew goes on a pilgrimage, only to return decades later to find that his former charge Little Miss (Davidtz) is now an ancient and grandmother of Portia (Davidtz again). Love, it appears, is in the air, encouraging Andrew to change from automaton to a human. Cue a fully fleshed Williams and sermonising about anthropomorphism, immortality, euthanasia, etc.
