Contagion (2011)

Starring: Matt Damon, Kate Winslet, Lawrence Fishburne, Gwyneth Paltrow, Jude Law, Marion Cotillard
Director: Steven Soderbergh

An unknown virus sweeps its way across the globe infecting millions as doctors try to find a cure and government official try to keep order and normal people attempt to hold their lives together.

My Take:
What makes this movie so damn frightening is the scenario is 100% plausible.
It has a star studded cast, a top notch director, and a solid script. It's very interesting watching the different react to the spread of the virus, the containment, and handling a cure. Everything clicked for me.
You'll never want to shake hands with another person again.

Rating: So Good
