Natalie Portman, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Tessa Thompson, and Gina Rodriquez headline this bold and trippy eco-thriller from talented and visionary director Alex Garland (Ex Machina). They play military scientists, each suffering in her own way, who are chosen to investigate an ominous, mesmerizing anomaly, “the Shimmer,” that is growing larger, is full of mutating organisms, and has defeated every male group that has entered, with only one survivor. Based on the best-selling Southern Reach trilogy by Jeff VanderMeer, this is an ambitious film whose themes will linger.
