Sometimes, floating around Netflix with no specific destination in mind can take you places you never saw coming. Tonight, I stumbled across World of Tomorrow, a brilliant short animated science fiction film about a clone giving it's 'prime' (first generation) original a tour of the future. That, however, is not really what the film is about. Instead, it is a heartbreaking story of love, loss, the impersonal, unfeeling future of technological wonders that stands before us, and the unwavering optomism of children to make the world a better place. I don't want to give anything else away - please, take 17(!) minutes out of your day and watch this movie. The director says more in those short minutes than most authors say in their entire catalog.
