Monsters tells the story of two Americans trying to make their way back to the United States through the "infected zone" of Mexico. This brilliant feature that was written and directed by Welshman Gareth Edwards is a compellingly well-rounded sci-fi film, which is no mean feat considering that the majority of the film was improvised by Edwards himself and his two leads, Scoot McNairy and Whitney Able.
At the heart of the film is the blossoming relationship between (real life couple) McNairy and Able's characters, which adds a surprisingly tender dimension to an already highly accomplished piece of science fictional cinema.
Monsters is out on DVD in the UK April 11th.
