Melanie seems to be a genuinely sweet girl. Uber-intelligent, and appreciative of attention.

But she has a small problem.

The world is suffering a fungal disease, which turn people into "hungries." They're similar to our friends from zombie films, and The Walking Dead, but not precisely.

The Girl with All the Gifts is a thoughtful film, that goes in a different direction, and as such held my interest.

From a tech perspective, the first thing that I noticed was the aspect ratio, which goes back to the like of SuperScope at 2:1.

Shot digitally, Lionsgate's new Blu-ray is a wonderful representation of the DCP. Audio, which is DTS-HD MA 5.1, covers the soundstage nicely.

The film was produced on a low-budget, as a part of the UK lottery system and the BFI, and filmmaker Colm McCarthy has used the funds well.
