The Girl with All the Gifts (15)

Venue: Diss High School
Directed by Colm McCarthy, UK / USA, 2016, 111 mins
With Gemma Arterton, Glenn Close, Paddy Considine
This intelligent British chiller is set in a dystopian near future. Society has broken down after most of humanity is wiped out by a mysterious fungal infection. A scientist (Close), a teacher (Arterton) and two soldiers embark on a perilous journey of survival with a special young girl named Melanie.  With nods to the tribalism of Lord of the Flies and the alien bonds of Wyndham’s The Midwich Cuckoos, The Girl with all the Gifts ‘juggles thoughtfulness and gore, brains and brawn, with subversive wit and invention.’ Mark Kermode, The Guardian


‘a zombie movie with both guts and brains’
The Telegraph
