Throughout his career, director Drake Doremus (Like Crazy; Breathe In; Equals) has explored the idea of human relationships and compatibility, often with critically derided results.

With his latest romantic drama, Zoe, Doremus stays in the sci-fi milieu he explored with Equals, and with a current 27% on Rotten Tomatoes, it seems it may be another misfire from a filmmaker who seems incompatible with critics.

Ewan McGregor and Léa Seydoux play a pair of researchers whose job involves assessing the suitability of romantic partners. No surprise that they begin to develop feelings for one another. Complicating things is Theo James as a robot lover, with Rashida JonesChristina Aguilera and Miranda Otto also starring.

Zoe debuts on Amazon Prime July 20th. Check out the trailer below and let us know your thoughts.

The official synopsis reads:

ZOE tells a haunting tale of forbidden love between a robotic engineer and a synthetic robot. ZOE (Léa Seydoux) and COLE (Ewan McGregor) are colleagues and veiled lovers at Relationist Labs, a cutting-edge research lab committed to designing powerful technology to improve and perfect romantic relationships. However, their relationship is threatened when Zoe discovers a harsh truth about their relationship, sending them into a tumultuous spiral of confusion, betrayal and the most intense of human emotions, love.
