Antiviral

The movie’s premise is that in the near future people will pay money to be infected with viruses from celebrities. “From their body to yours.” You can tell it’s the near future because it looks like today except everything is white. The movie starts off as a possible parody commentary on the cult of celebrity and famous for being famous, but then integrates an actual plotline and turns into a corporate espionage thriller. There’s also some cool ideas about copy protection. Well produced, scripted, and paced. Keeps the overt messaging to a minimum while still being thought provoking. And not just entertaining, but educational. I learned that multicolored tulip flowers are the result of infection with a plant virus.
