(UK, 2014) Written and directed by Alex Garland. Cast: Domhnall Gleeson, Alicia Vikander, Oscar Isaac, Sonoya Mizuno.

It seems like the blink of an eye between Alan Turing developing a proto-computer that could communicate with another machine (seen onscreen in The Imitation Game), to Ex Machina, where a young man tries to explore the consciousness of a computer in the form of a human. Irish actor Domhnall Gleeson (Never Let Me Go, Calvary) stars as the coder who wins a competition awarding him the chance to spend a week at the estate of his company’s brilliant CEO (Oscar Isaac of Inside Llewyn Davis). His challenge: to explore the mind and emotions of a new android (Alicia Vikander), whose intelligence is much more than ‘artificial.’ 110 min.

“Alex Garland (who wrote 28 Days) makes an impressive debut as a director, spinning an unsettling futuristic thriller with expertise and exquisite taste…” – Ann Hornaday, Washington Post.
