Cargo ★★★

Navigating awkwardly through a run-of-the-mill rural zombie apocalypse (yes, that is a thing in 2018), a grieving father with child in tow (Martin Freeman) and an indigenous Australian girl (Simone Landers) make a connection that attempts to elevate the material above standard fare into something more worthy, and moving. However, Cargo is burdened by clumsy editing, a one-dimensional villain (I mean, besides the viral outbreak and those it infects) lifted straight out of Wolf Creek, and some unfortunate colonialist/white-saviour overtones that keep it from being the much better film its themes deserve.
