FILM: Annihilation

Annihilation                      Wednesday, July 25, 2-4pm
At the U.S. government's Area X facility on a southern coast, cellular biology professor and former U.S. Army soldier Lena joins four female scientists on an expedition into an anomaly called "the shimmer"- where the laws of nature do not apply. Her husband Kane is the only survivor of previous incursions. The acting is solid. The visuals are gorgeous. The mood is unsettling from start to finish. Annihilation is a strong effort from director/screenwriter Alex Garland.    R, 2h, 2018
