A Cure For Wellness centres around an ambitious young executive, played by Dane DeHaan, who’s sent to retrieve his company’s CEO from an idyllic, but mysterious, “wellness centre” in a remote Swiss Alps location. As the trailer gets across, once you arrive, it’s difficult to escape, hence he soon suspects that the spa’s miraculous treatments are not what they seem. When he begins to unravel its terrifying secrets, his sanity is tested, as he finds himself diagnosed with the same curious illness that keeps all the guests here longing for the cure.
Directed by Gore Verbinski, who co-wrote the story with screenwriter Justin Haythe, the film also stars Jason Isaacs, Mia Goth, Celia Imrie, Susanne Wuest, Carl Lumbly and Adrian Schiller and I’m very intrigued by this. I assumed it was adapted from a novel, but it’s a whole new story and I’m very much looking forward to this.
A Cure For Wellness is released in the UK on March 24th 2017
