Review

This elegantly directed sci-fi wanders about in half-worn territories discussing the interface between next-level artificial intelligence and the ever so immoral human race. There are a few clever ideas and some beautiful imagery, but also agonizingly familiar power struggles and plot developments. The obviously talented director and co-writer Grant Sputore fails to give the film's climatic moments the grandeur which he builds them up to have. Lead actress Clara Rugaard not only has talent and beauty, but also a definite star quality. Both she and Sputore will most likely go on to deliver even better work in the future.
