Rotten Tomatoes Freshness: 89%

Critic Consensus: “Ex Machina leans heavier on ideas than effects, but it’s still a visually polished piece of work — and an uncommonly engaging sci-fi feature”

Starring: Blake Lively, Michael Huisman, Harrison Ford, Ellen Burstyn, Kathy Baker, Amanda Crew

Directed by: Lee Toland Kreiger

RT Freshness: 54%

Critic Consensus: “The Age of Adaline ruminates on mortality less compellingly than similarly themed films, but is set apart by memorable performances from Blake Lively and Harrison Ford”


Little Boy
