Civil War

May 31 
From filmmaker Alex Garland (28 days Later), Civil War is a journey across a dystopian future America, following a team of military-embedded journalists as they race against time to reach DC before rebel factions descend upon the White House.

Two photographers (Kirsten Dunst and Priscilla’s Cailee Spaeny) and two reporters (Wagner Moura and Stephen McKinley Henderson) — making the intrepid drive from New York City to Washington, D.C., where they hope to question an authoritarian president (Nick Offerman) who treats members of the media as enemy combatants. The pit stops they make along the way expose the group to gun-toting goons who’d be all too happy to execute them for saying the wrong thing. As the hardened quartet travels, the film zeroes in on war’s numbing effect.(

Currently sits with 81% Fresh on with critics saying: 

This teeth-clenching thriller is superbly paced, feels mercilessly realistic, and sees Kirsten Dunst and her co-stars doing some of the best work of their careers when an America of the near future takes its last gasp”. – RTÉ
