Harrison's character Rick Deckard fosters her while trying to keep his assignment priorities in check, and in the process must question his own motivations and mortality. This is really a much more complex and adult oriented film than many people have given it credit for.
I didn't know anything about the film and I went in expecting more or less a science fiction film that would be a little bit more action oriented I suppose.
I admittedly could be talking out my arse here, though Onto the acting, and this isn't as clear as other aspects of the film, because not everyone shines, but those that do, do so brightly.
