Tom Hanks is Finch (AppleTV)

This week's Must See Movie of the Week is Finch, starring Tom Hanks with a dog and a robot, neither of which is named Wilson.

A solar flare destroyed the ozone layer decimating Earth leaving few survivors. Robotics engineer Finch Weinberg (Tom Hanks) lives alone with his dog Goodyear and a helper-robot Dewey in an underground St. Louis laboratory once owned by the company he worked for before the cataclysm.

Dying from the elements, Finch is working on creating a humanoid robot companion to take care of his dog once he is gone.

This is a family-friendly film with new elements of kindness and virtue we have not seen from writers in some time. It is a nice film without all the madness and anger we see in so many films of late.

Watch it on Apple TV.
