Based on the best-selling young-adult book of the same name, this unique take on a dystopian future subverts the horror genre with its clever narrative and brutal approach. Young Melanie (newcomer Sennia Nanua) lives in a secret compound where soldiers call her “an abomination” and kids disappear every time a doctor asks her to choose a number between 1 and 10. The reason for this is revealed as the world falls apart and Melanie must go on a journey on which rests the fate of all humanity; joining her will be the soldier who needs to kill her, the doctor who wants to use her and the teacher who just wants to help. Bolstered by standout performances from Glenn Close, Paddy Considine and Gemma Atherton, this is a big-budget horror title with the darkest of sensibilities - a film that dares to ask some very disturbing questions about humanity and presents the most unexpected of answers.
