Annihilation review – Natalie Portman thriller leaves a haunting impression

Today 16:25 GMT

Portman is a strident, fiercely compelling presence, investing us in both her mission and her interlinked marriage (flashbacks to her relationship with Isaac are surprisingly sweet, witty and sexy), providing an emotional center without the need for sentimentality.
