Product description

Product Description

Contagion follows the rapid progress of a lethal airborne virus that kills within days. As the fast-moving epidemic grows, the worldwide medical community races to find a cure and control the panic that spreads faster than the virus itself. At the same time, ordinary people struggle to survive in a society coming apart.

Directed by Academy Award® winner Steven Soderbergh (Traffic), Contagion brings together a stellar international ensemble cast, including Academy Award® winner Marion Cotillard (La Vie en Rose, Inception); Academy Award® winner Matt Damon (Good Will Hunting, the Bourne films); Oscar® nominee Laurence Fishburne (What's Love Got to Do With It, The Matrix); Oscar® nominee Jude Law (Cold Mountain, Sherlock Holmes); Academy Award® winner Gwyneth Paltrow (Shakespeare in Love, Iron Man); and Academy Award® winner Kate Winslet (The Reader, Titanic).

Extra Content

- Contagion: How a Virus Changes the World


From Amazon.co.uk

Steven Soderbergh alternates between films about individuals, like Erin Brockovich, and multi-character thrillers, like Contagion, which takes a Traffic-style approach to a deadly pandemic. It also represents a reunion for three actors from The Talented Mr. Ripley as Gwyneth Paltrow and Matt Damon play a suburban Minneapolis couple, while Jude Law (with unflattering dentures) plays a muckraking Bay Area blogger. When Beth (Paltrow) returns from a business trip to Hong Kong, she brings a virus with her that spreads across the world, attracting the attention of people at the Centers for Disease Control (Laurence Fishburne, Kate Winslet, and Jennifer Ehle) and the World Health Organization (Marion Cotillard). Just as virologists frantically try to track down the origins of the pathogen and to find a cure, it starts to mutate, foiling every move they make. Soderbergh, who serves as his own cinematographer, captures every development: false rumors, looting in the streets, and mass graves. Whenever he focuses on emptied-out offices and supermarkets, chillers like I Am Legend spring to mind, even if Contagion avoids most sci-fi/horror tropes, except for a stomach-churning autopsy sequence--one of his few real missteps. Mostly, he concentrates on cool heads dealing with life-and-death issues the best they can. The end result registers as more realistic than Outbreak, if less pulse pounding than Traffic, though the final sequence proves Soderbergh can find the grace notes even amidst an unbearable tragedy. --Kathleen C. Fennessy
