About the Movie
Alex Garland, writer of 28 Days Later and Sunshine, makes his directorial debut with the stylish and cerebral thriller, EX MACHINA. Caleb Smith (Domhnall Gleeson), a programmer at an internet-search giant, wins a competition to spend a week at the private mountain estate of the company's brilliant and reclusive CEO, Nathan Bateman (Oscar Isaac). Upon his arrival, Caleb learns that Nathan has chosen him to be the human component in a Turing Test—charging him with evaluating the capabilities, and ultimately the consciousness, of Nathan’s latest experiment in artificial intelligence. That experiment is Ava (Alicia Vikander), a breathtaking A.I. whose emotional intelligence proves more sophisticated––and more deceptive––than the two men could have imagined.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Like stage actors who live and breathe their roles over the course of months, Isaac, Gleeson, and Vikander excel, and cast a spell.
Fresh: [A] methodically absorbing sci-fi drama.
Fresh: "Ex Machina" takes its time, wrestling with questions of responsibility, morality and compassion while getting ever weirder. At its heart is Ava, played with a fine blend of innocence and quiet panic by Vikander.
Fresh: "Ex Machina" is a tense tale of artificial love so intelligently crafted and edgy that I adored it myself.
Great film! A must see film. All the actors are amazing. Alex Garland is brilliant.
Nothing less than a Masterpiece
A clever movie for clever people. I am speechless... It's hard to find films that combine intelligence and visual effect.
Waiting for Part 2?
The end may be the beginning. This film may become a classic.
