Written and directed by Alex Garland, Ex Machina (2014) stars Domhnall Gleeson as a programmer at an internet company who becomes part of a Turing test when he's invited to stay at the CEO's private estate. The robot in question (Alicia Vikander) teams up with Gleeson to escape the estate, but whose side is she really on?
