In this science fiction thriller, a young coder wins a contest to spend a week being mentored by a famous tech genius. At the genius' high-tech home, the young man finds that he's being used to test out a new artificially intelligent robot's abilities to masquerade as a human. Sofware developer Caleb wins a contest that allows him to spend a week at the luxurious home of his company's CEO, Nathan Bateman. The idea of the contest is that Caleb will gain insights into his work by spending time with the genius founder of the giant search engine company. At the remote estate, Caleb finds that Bateman has created an artificially intelligent android in the form of a beautiful human woman. Bateman's plan is to have Caleb interact with the android, Ava. The goal is to see if the artificial intelligence can fool Caleb into forgetting she's a machine. The plan begins to go awry when Caleb begins to question Bateman's motives. He increasingly becomes sympathetic to the plight of the android. The real question however is whether Ava's own motives are pure. The film has received broadly positive reviews from critics. It has been praised for its thoughtful exploration of the topic of artificial intelligence. Some critics complained that the film's ending did not live up to the standards of the rest of the plot. But overall, the consensus is that the film is an outstanding piece of science fiction.
