About the film:

Contagion is a Hollywood blockbuster that offers a realistic portrayal of a pandemic in the 21st century. The plot follows the rapid progress of a lethal airborne virus which kills within days. As the virus spreads, the worldwide medical community races to find a cure and control panic and the collapse of social order. Contagion has been praised for it's accurate perception of a pandemic event and pays tribute to scientists and public health officials committed to halting emerging viruses.
