Contagion

de Steven Soderbergh

Trailer

Synopsis

Thing about your day-to-day life: when you hand your credit card to a waiter, when you shake hands at a work meeting or when you see someone sneeze on the bus. An instant, and the virus has been spread. Returning from a business trip to Hong Kong, Beth sees the harmless little cold she had turn into something much more serious. Soon, more cases like Beth’s start to come to light all over the planet: the pandemic is a reality, the alarm is raised. Steven Soderbergh wanted to emulate George Clooney in Ocean’s Eleven and now he already has his Six: Cotillard, Damon, Law, Paltrow, Fishburne, Winslet. To talk about a deluxe lineup would be an understatement.
