Cast: Mahershala Ali, Naomie Harris, Awkwafina, Glenn Close, Adam Beach

Sometime in the future, the terminally ill Cameron Turner agrees to secure his family’s future by having himself cloned without their knowledge, but can he really go through with the procedure? Mahershala Ali gives another strong (dual) performance in this melancholic, atmospheric and beautifully designed scifi character drama. Although the premise is intriguing, in practice this is an episode of Black Mirror stretched over two hours.
