An intelligent, thought-provoking, and disturbingly realistic medical thriller that packs an emotional and cerebral punch. Superb acting from an A-list cast. Tense plotting. Well-executed premise. Exceptional script. Slick electronic score. Overall, the best film about an epidemic/pandemic I’ve seen to date. Definitely worth your time…. but as another critic cautioned, just be sure you know who you’re sharing your popcorn with.

Stay away from other people.”
