THE GIRL WITH ALL THE GIFTS
Directed by Colm McCarthy
Horror, Drama, Thriller
Rated 14A: violence
In the near future humanity has been decimated by a virus that turns its victims into flesh-eating “hungries”. Only a small group of children are immune. They still crave human flesh but they can think and feel, making them vital to finding a cure. At an army base, these children are subjected to experiments by biologist Dr. Caldwell (Glenn Close), under the guard of Sergeant Parks (Paddy Considine). But one little girl, Melanie, stands out. She’s inquisitive, imaginative and loves her favourite teacher Miss Justineau (Gemma Arterton). When the base falls, Melanie escapes with the adults and embarks on a journey to discover the world, what she is, and ultimately decides both her own future and that of the human race.
