The Girl with all the Gifts is set in a dystopian world where a fungal spore has infected most of the world’s population, causing the infected to lose their mental functions and feed on human flesh. Based on M.R. Carey’s 2014 novel of the same name, The Girl with all the Gifts follows a particular infected child that has retained her mental capacities and exhibits genius-level IQ—the hope being that she can provide some kind of cure or vaccine from the infection.
Hardly “just another zombie movie,” The Girl with all the Gifts is also a heartfelt examination of humanity. Directed by Colm McCarthy and starring new-comer Sennia Nanua, Gemma Arterton, Glenn Close, and Paddy Considine, the film opens in the US on February 24th.
