When Federal Agent Aaron Falk returns to his home town after an absence of over twenty years to attend the funeral of his childhood friend, Luke, who allegedly killed his wife and child before taking his own life – a victim of the madness that has ravaged this community after more than a decade of drought. When Falk reluctantly agrees to stay and investigate the crime, he opens up an old wound – the death of 17- year-old Ellie Deacon.

As he struggles to prove not only Luke’s innocence but also his own, Falk finds himself pitted against the prejudice towards him and and pent-up rage of a terrified community.

WARM BODIES (2013)
Starring Nicholas Hoult, Teresa Palmer, Analeigh Tipton, John Malkovich, Dave Franco, Rob Corddry, Cory Hardrict, Vincent Leclerc, Daniel Rindress-Kay and Chris Cavener. Directed by Jonathan Levine.

R is a young man facing the existential crisis that comes with being a zombie. Grunting his way through a post-apocalyptic America with the mindless hunger of the undead R has no memories, but he has dreams and his inner life is full of wonder and longing for the time that must have gone before.

When the memories in one of his victim’s brains affect him, he finds himself attracted to, rescuing, befriending and eventually falling in love with the dead boy’s still living-girlfriend. Julie is a blast of colour in the dreary and grey landscape that is the “life” of the un-living. Their tense, awkward and strangely sweet relationship develops into something that will not only transform R but his fellow zombies and possibly their entire lifeless world.

REVIEWS Warm Bodies - The undead get hot and funny
