Passing the Turing test indicates an intelligence indistinguishable from a human intelligence. Exactly what such a result implies is a matter of debate and the conclusion that the characters in the film draw - that passing would imply consciousness - is one of many accepted schools of thought on the subject.

Very good balance between sci-fi and psychology
A great story, with complex yet very relatable characters.
AI has been a recurring theme in sci-fi movies for some time now with varying degrees of plot and execution quality. I feel this movie aces both.
A secluded environment and very good original music set the mood for full focus on story and character development. The plot twists time and time again as an intelligence power-play is delivered with very good performances by this little known cast. Character development feels perfect as each one gains depth without loosing essence.
From a sci-fi point of view, it's not you're typical FX based movie, nor is it an action film. Nevertheless some very good effects and acting make for an excellent merge between fact and fiction that lets you concentrate on the philosophical questions the movie asks about the nature of AI.
Conclusion: I'd recommend this film to anyone. Though warning it concentrates on the brain rather than the muscle. Excellent movie.
