Fear in the Forest - The Girl with All the Gifts
29 Oct 2022
Start Time: 18:15:00
Venue: Kirroughtree Forest Visitor Centre
In many ways, Melanie is just another ordinary girl. She goes to school every day, where she's grown affection for her teacher Ms. Justineau. And she's at that age where she's figuring out what's important to her, and how to navigate through the world of adults around her. But Melanie is not an ordinary girl. She will soon be a mindless, soulless zombie, a braindead creature who responds only to a desire to kill and eat people around her. Just when you thought the zombie genre was out of ideas, along comes Colm McCarthy's smart and engaging "The Girl with All the Gifts," a film with echoes of George A. Romero, Danny Boyle, and Robert Kirkman but one that also feels confidently its own creation, a unique take on responsibility, adulthood, and a new chapter in evolution.
