Steven Soderbergh directs this thriller about a deadly virus, MEV-1, and how people react, some good some bad.  Beth Emhoff (GwynethPaltrow) is its first victim.  Her husband, Mitch (Matt Damon) is immune, but their daughter may not be.  Drs. Cheever (Laurence Fishburne) and Mears (Kate Winslet) team up to define the virus and trace its origin.  Dr. Orantes (Marion Cotillard) searchers for the source in Macau, China while Drs. Hextall (Jennifer Ehle) and Sussman (Elliot Gould) focus on a new vaccine.  Blogger Krumwiede (Jude Law) uses MEV-1 to get rich.  Who will live or die when a friendly handshake is all MEV-1 needs to seal your fate?

Classroom Tips:

1. Preview both the movie and its lesson. Lesson and movie are in the same sequence.
2. Within the lesson, decide which quotes, questions, and vocabulary to focus on. Highlight or cut-and-paste content you plan to use.
3. Estimate how you'll use available time for both watching and discussing the movie.
4. Remember: Most questions on the lesson are easy for a native speaker of English to answer, so the movie itself is the answer key.
5. Assessments are at http://www.moviesgrowenglish.com/Assessments.html.
