A star-studded ensemble cast, anchored by Matt Damon in a multi-narrative format, is followed across the globe as a new virus ravages lives in this prescient 2011 film directed by Steven Soderbergh. Written by Scott Z. Burns, who had previously teamed up with Soderbergh and Damon in 2009’s The Informant, Burns’ background in films based on true stories and documentaries is put to good use in this well-researched fictional film that was impressive in how much it got right about what happens when a novel virus spreads quickly. This underrated film garnered new interest from viewers in 2020 because of its relevance to the COVID-19 pandemic.
