description

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, INSIDE LLEWYN DAVIS). 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.

press for Ex Machina

"Alex Garland's brittle, beautiful directorial debut is a digital-age 'Frankenstein' refashioned as a battle of the sexes."
- Variety
"Artfully spartan in its use of digital effects, EX MACHINA looks great, forging a strong visual aesthetic from a limited budget."
- Hollywood Reporter
