LOS ANGELES, Jan. 13, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Plato's Reality Machine will open for a one-week limited theatrical release at the Arena Cinema in Hollywood on January 30th. A Chekhovian romantic comedy with a dash of techno/sci-fi thrown in for good measure, the narrative depicts the interweaving affairs of six attractive New Yorkers in their late 20s/early 30s. They achieve physical intimacy quickly while having difficulty attaining enduring emotional attachments. The focus is on Charles, who has an obsession with a futuristic video game that features a seductive female ray-gun-toting space soldier, Sophia. But his other five human associates are all playing games of their own. One of Charles' lovers, the dazzling Maggie, finds enough presence of mind to (finally) want a truly adult relationship. Will Charles be able to win this very special woman back, or will he retreat to the video world of outer space forever?
