Stay home. Lock up. Don’t breathe. A local fam­i­ly copes with the col­lapse of civ­i­liza­tion when a mys­te­ri­ous virus threat­ens their afflu­ent sub­urb in the tense thriller What We Become.

The Johansson fam­i­ly — mom, dad, their rebel­lious teenage son, and young daugh­ter — are look­ing for­ward to a qui­et sum­mer in their idyl­lic sub­ur­ban town. But in the blink of an eye, things go from bliss­ful to berserk when a hor­ri­fy­ing plague tears through the com­mu­ni­ty. After a string of gris­ly deaths, the gov­ern­ment puts the neigh­bor­hood on lock­down. But one thing soon becomes ter­ri­fy­ing­ly clear: you can’t quar­an­ti­ne the apoc­a­lypse. This night­mar­ish, blood-soaked shock­er estab­lish­es sharply drawn, rec­og­niz­ably real characters—and then watch­es what hap­pens when they’re put through the wringer to sur­vive.

What We Become is a very pret­ty movie with a very dark heart. The pay­off is bru­tal, but earned…” – The New York Times
