Annihilation – (2018. US 1 hr, 55 min. Directed by Alex Garland. R.)
One of the best-reviewed films of the year tells the story of biologist Lena (Natalie Portman) who is mourning the loss of her soldier husband, Kane (Oscar Isaac), when he suddenly shows up, extremely disoriented and unable to remember anything. As Lena tries to take him to the hospital, they’re intercepted and taken instead to a secret government facility. There, Lena learns about The Shimmer, a mysterious force that has appeared out of nowhere and seems to be expanding. All efforts to enter into it have met with failure; no one has come back alive except Kane. Teaming up with four other women- Dr. Ventress (Jennifer Jason Leigh), Anya (Gina Rodriguez), Josie (Tessa Thompson), and Cass (Tuva Novotny)- Lena volunteers to go into the unknown area, hoping to save her husband as well as solve the mystery. But what she finds inside is beyond even her wildest expectations. With Benedict Wong.
