It’s Ellen Page vs. Zombies in ‘Cured’

by Phil Wheat

Directed by David Freyne, in his feature length debut, Cured stars Ellen Page, Sam Keeley, Tom Vaughan-Lawlor, and Paula Malcomson. The film, which asks the question: “What happens when the undead return to life?” is out on 23rd February 2018, through IFC Films.

In a world ravaged for years by a virus that turns the infected into zombie-like cannibals, a cure is at last found and the wrenching process of reintegrating the survivors back into society begins. Among the formerly afflicted is Senan (Sam Keeley), a young man haunted by the horrific acts he committed while infected. Welcomed back into the family of his widowed sister-in-law (Ellen Page), Senan attempts to restart his life — but is society ready to forgive him and those like him? Or will fear and prejudice once again tear the world apart? Pulsing with provocative parallels to our troubled times, The Cured is a smart, scary, and hauntingly human tale of guilt and redemption.
