Speaking with Consequence, she said: "When I first read it [the script] I was sobbing, quite frankly. Rarely are you so moved by a script and you can so fully see exactly what the writer is depicting to you.

"With this story written by Mattson Tomlin, who wanted an in on his own personal story and choosing a robot artificial intelligence revolution — all of those layers going into it make it something singular. I don’t think we’ve ever seen it before."

Chloë explains that the film, particularly the sad ending, were inspired by Mattson was given up for adoption by his parents during the Romanian revolution before being adopted by an American family in Massachusetts.
