An excellent, sophisticated indie sci-fi film
8 February 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Just watched this at the Santa Barbara film festival. Very thought-provoking and impressively deep. I've been to a couple of film festivals (including Sundance, twice), and I can honestly say that this is the first sci-fi movie I've wanted to immediately watch again. This movie will make you think long and hard about the choices that we as a society make regarding science, specifically with respect to artificial intelligence and robots. The plot constantly held my attention and had me on the edge of my seat. The acting and directing choices were unusual, compelling, and riveting. I haven't seen one of the main actors (David Rogers) much before, but he was particularly good.

Bottom line- I would not be surprised if this were to become a sleeper hit.
