As a fast-moving epidemic grows, the worldwide medical community races to find a cure and control the panic that spreads faster than the virus itself. At the same time, ordinary people struggle to survive in a society coming apart. With a stellar international ensemble cast including Matt Damon, Gwyneth Paltrow, Kate Winslet, and Marion Cotillard, Soderbergh’s action thriller takes on a new, chilling effect in our “post-COVID” world. Followed by a discussion with Suzet McKinney, principal and director of Life Sciences, Sterling Bay in conversation with Ania Labno, director of the healthcare industry team at KKR Capstone.
