From the Daily Dot

In Alex Garland's adaptation of Annihilation, we still get to explore Area X, a quarantined area of land besieged by mysterious environmental changes. That's about where the similarities to the book end. The film uses author Jeff VanderMeer's spectral setting to get in its characters' heads. Natalie Portman plays Lena, a biologist and former soldier who is grieving the loss of her husband, Kane (Oscar Isaac). He was sent into Area X on a secret mission and feared dead, but he suddenly returns home – altered. Lena's mission there is one of truth and redemption, but Portman plays her with appropriate detachment. We don't really know her true motives, and fellow travelers Anya (Gina Rodriguez), Cass (Tuva Novotny), Josie (Tessa Thompson), and Dr. Ventress (Jennifer Jason Leigh) have their own reasons for going on an apparent suicide mission.
