Colm McCarthy | UK / USA | 2016 | 111mins | Sennia Nanua, Glenn Close, Gemma Arterton, Paddy Considine, Fisayo Akinade
Sennia Nanua, Gemma Arterton, Glenn Close and Paddy Considine stars in Colm McCarthy’s brilliantly realised horror. Adapted by M.R.Carey from his novel of the same name, it’s set in a dystopian future. Humanity has been ravaged by a mysterious disease. The afflicted are turned into flesh-eating 'hungries'; the only hope is a small group of hybrid children who retain the ability to think and feel. At school, these children are subjected to experiments by Dr Caldwell (Close); while teacher Helen (Arterton) grows close to an exceptional girl named Melanie (Sennia Nanua) – and when they embark on a perilous journey, Melanie must come to terms with who she really is.
