Warning. This article contains spoilers for Mother/Android
Mother/Android star Chloë Grace Moretz has opened up about the film's shocking ending which has left viewers in tears.
The film stars Moretz and Euphoria's Algee Smith as a couple expecting their first child, after thousands of evil robots turn against their human owners.
After making it to an army base in Boston during the robot uprising, Georgia (Chloe Grace Moretz) gives birth to a baby boy they name Forest.
A boat service operated by a group called the Family Initiative are transporting people to South Korea where it is safe. But when the young family arrive, there’s only one boat left and they're told only baby Forest will be able to come aboard.
As mum and baby are separated forever, she writes a heartbreaking goodbye letter explaining her choices to her son. In the next scene Georgia is seen alone in Boston, after Sam presumably dies from his injuries, as she burns pictures of them together, symbolising her leaving the past behind.
Now the Kick Ass actress has explained that the ending was inspired by the real life experiences of director Mattson Tomlin.
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.
"I think there’s hope ultimately that humanity can move on and humanity and love will conquer all ultimately. We can move forward," she adds.
Earlier this week fans took to Twitter to express their heartache after watching Georgia and Sam treacherous journey. One viewer tweeted: "Well I am traumatised and crying in bed after watching Mother/Android on Netflix. The ending has proper ruined my Sunday I’m so sad."
