Film of the day: A Cure For Wellness

A Cure for Wellness

Gore Verbinski’s slow-burn psychological horror stars Dane DeHaan (seen most recently in Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets) as Lockhart, an ambitious Wall Street money man sent to retrieve his firm’s troubled CEO (Harry Groener) from a remote sanatorium high in the Swiss Alps.

His aim is to get in and out as quickly as possible, but then a freak road accident forces him to extend his stay and – at the insistence of facility director Dr Volmer (Jason Isaacs) – undergo treatment. Soon it emerges that Volmer and his eerily serene staff might be hiding something. But what? And what does it have to do with the mysterious, child-like Hannah (Mia Goth).
