Soderbergh has been prolific as of late, as Kimi, which stars Zoë Kravitz, will mark the fifth movie that the director has released since 2019. The Oscar-winning director has also been a big proponent of movies playing on streaming services, as all of his most recent movies, including Kimi, have been streaming plays.

Kimi is released exclusively on HBO Max on Friday, February 10.

This is the third straight Soderbergh movie to only play on HBO Max, following 2020’s Let Them All Talk and 2021’s No Sudden Move. His other two previous movies, High Flying Bird and The Laundromat, were also streaming releases, but on Netflix.


“An agoraphobic Seattle tech worker uncovers evidence of a crime.” But thankfully, the recently released trailer gives us a better idea of what Kimi is about; and it looks a bit like Rear Window for the 21st century.

Angela Childs is a tech worker whose job is to listen and monitor audio streams. When she hears one that she believes is evidence to a murder, she desperately tries to get someone to believe her and help her solve the crime. The script comes from David Koepp (Jurassic ParkMission: ImpossibleSpider-Man).

Where the movie gets its title is the name of Angela’s home assistant device, Kimi. Clearly inspired by Alexa, Kimi and other technology that are part of our lives are key pieces in the movie’s larger question — what if every breath, every sound, every moment was recorded?
