FILM: THE HOST

In the not-too-distant future a human being and an alien invader trapped in the same body fight for survival, for the men they each love, and for the destiny of the planet in ‘The Host’, a romantic sci-fi adventure based on the best-selling novel by ‘Twilight’ saga author Stephenie Meyer.
Earth has been colonized by the Souls, an alien race that displaces humans from their own bodies and turns them into hosts for interplanetary travellers. The Souls have transformed the planet into a clean, safe, peaceful world — but at an unthinkable cost: most of the human race has been eradicated. A few, like Melanie Stryder (Saoirse Ronan), a resilient young woman, have survived in hiding, their lives a constant struggle to avoid capture and annihilation.

Taken prisoner by a Seeker (Diane Kruger), whose job it is to provide human bodies to serve as hosts for new arrivals, Melanie risks her life to avoid capture. But she miraculously survives and a Soul named Wanderer is implanted into her body. When the Seeker attempts to get Wanderer to extract information about other human holdouts from Melanie’s memory, Melanie’s tenacious consciousness fights back.
Refusing to simply fade away, Melanie convinces Wanderer to return to Melanie’s family, which includes her boyfriend, Jared (Max Irons), her 11-year-old brother, Jamie (Chandler Canterbury), her Uncle Jeb (William Hurt) and her aunt Maggie (Frances Fisher).

In their underground desert hideaway, Wanderer (now known as Wanda) meets Ian (Jake Abel), the man she (Wanda) is destined to love, creating an almost unbearable internal rift between her and Melanie. As Wanda betrays her people to help Melanie save hers, the Seeker pursues them relentlessly, for a shocking reason that only she knows.
