The afflicted are robbed of all free will and turned into flesh-eating “hungries”. Humankind’s only hope is a small group of hybrid children who crave human flesh but retain the ability to think and feel. The children go to school at an army base in rural Britain where they’re subjected to cruel experiments by Dr. Caroline Caldwell (Glenn Close). School teacher Helen Justineau (Gemma Arterton) grows particularly close to an exceptional girl named Melanie (Sennia Nanua), thus forming a special bond. But when the base is invaded, the trio escapes with the assistance of Sgt. Eddie Parks (Paddy Considine) and they embark on a perilous journey of survival, during which Melanie must come to terms with who she is.
Plot: In the future, a strange fungus has changed nearly everyone into a thoughtless, flesh-eating monster. When a scientist and a teacher find a girl who seems to be immune to the fungus, they all begin a journey to save humanity.

The Last of Us
The opening scenes of The Girl with all the Gifts throw you if you know little about the film. Melanie (Sennia Nanua) is a young polite girl in a room that looks like a cell. In the morning she manacles herself into a wheel chair while armed soldiers push her to her classroom lessons along with other children in a similar state. Melanie remains unfailingly polite and we also realise she is clever.
Are these children gifted? Part of some experiment? Why are the soldiers armed and remain vigilant?
We soon find out when one soldier bursts in and rubs his arm with his spit. It looks like these children have cannibalistic tendencies, we already see Melanie given food which consisted of worms.
The film is a take on the Zombie movie, society has collapsed because of a fungal infection of the brain turning people into zombies and it is evolving. These children were rescued from a hospital as babies and raised by the army. Dr Caroline Caldwell (Glenn Close) is the scientist who sees Melanie and others to be experimented so she can find a cure for this fungus.
Helen Justineau (Gemma Arterton) is the teacher who wants to protect Melanie from the soldiers and Dr Caldwell. She seems to have bonded with Melanie and even Melanie shows a protective attitude towards her even when she needs to feed.
When the army base is in invaded by the zombies this three along with some soldiers escape and head for safety to another mobile unit. However it is clear society has broken down, the zombies are going through an evolution process and Dr Caldwell might be too late to develop a vaccine.
This is probably the most striking British zombie film since 28 Days Later. It is a low budget film shot mainly in and around the Midlands. Director Colm McCarthy makes an interesting opening to this film and best use of the small budget for some special effects shots. He keeps the story human, the development of the relationship between Melanie and Justineau. Dr Caldwell supplies the scientific explanations but the story dos slow down in parts over halfway through.
A wonderful central performance from Sennia Nanua who shows she is a talent to watch.
Making and breaking
A movie can become more than it is, if the ending gives you what you needed. But it can also fall flat on its belly, if you think they messed it up. And I can see how people are not liking the last portion of the film. But not liking and saying the movie did something it didn’t are two different things.
But let’s rewind and take this suspenseful horror from the beginning. Yes we do know things are not good and we do realize things might get worse. Or will they? And where are we going or rather the movie? It takes a lot on and it has the acting talent at hand to move things along nicely. It does not pull any punches and while the ending may feel weird, it’s still linked thematically and does fit into the whole thing. That doesn’t mean you have to like it – but don’t blame the movie or the pace. Like it or not, it is what it is
