Ex Machina

British writer-director Alex Garland spins a thrillingly cerebral creation story about a man who has designed a robot that could pass for human, without questioning the ethics of whether he should have. Matched by virtuoso visual effects and grounded by a trio of committed performances, this is sci-fi as stylish as it is substantial.





Computer programmer Caleb (Domhnall Gleeson) wins a contest to spend a week visiting the remote estate of Nathan (Oscar Isaac), his company's reclusive CEO. During his stay, he discovers he has actually been selected to spend time with an android named Ava (Alicia Vikander) to evaluate whether or not her A.I. is truly sentient.
