Ex Machina is a emotionally complex and deeply psychological drama about artificial intelligence, the nature of self-awareness, and preservation.

Directed by Ross Katz and produced by the Duplass Brothers, the film is a light and familiar comedy/drama about arrested development and embracing adulthood through family relationships.
