    Decent movie (6 out of 10). Rose Byrne voices a robot, Hillary Swank and a cute unknown is the cast.

    Has a Moon (2009) feel to it. Live in isolation, created & cared for by a friendly robot who has been lying, suddenly other people & a horrifying truth.

    I'm in!

    I enjoyed it. There were some logic issues i can't specifically remember that bothered me while watching but it was extremely atmospheric and visually rich. They also manage to generate legitimate tension and uncertanity for the protagonist, instead of just straight conflict which I didn't expect.

    I guess this should be spoilered, though I'm not specifically revealing anything:

    The big reveal of the main "twist" that the story is built around should be obvious to everyone - they kind of hit you over the head with the symbolism of the mouse in the jar she catches at the beginning - but the second little mini twist at the very end with Mother's final dialog caught me off guard.

    Thanks for posting. I was on the fence about whether to check it out.

    Pretty good!

    Played a little safe though, wish they'd have gone for "more", but the look, sound, atmosphere were all awesome, & no cringy characters/dialogue or anything which is half the battle in sci-fi.
