The cause of the infection is unknown to her and husband Mitch (Damon).
On the opposite side is Dr.Cheever (Laurence Fishburne) and Irina (Daria Strokous?)
I felt Contagion could have done better. The introduction to the movie was quality, a great piece of acting, as we get a glimpse of the affliction the deadly virus will have through out. My only problem was I don't think it carried that same affection it had at the start.
The movie had a great first half, with extreme tensity and realism, along with superb acting from Matt Damon and Gweneth Paltrow, but the movie needed more Gweneth Paltrow.
So Contagion was decent to watch. I would not tell anyone to avoid, simply because of the actors involved.
The story was a great idea, very original, but do not expect to remember it 24 hours later. The End of the movie killed it for me, I won't go into the end of the movie right now though! :)
Good plot, Great actors, got boring half way through, and I believe the end was rushed!
