STARRING Sarah Polley and Adrien Brody
DIRECTED BY Vincenzo Natali
WRITTEN BY Vincenzo Natali and Antoinette Terry Bryant and Doug Taylor

When she first read the screenplay for Splice, Sarah Polley recalls thinking it was ”the most enter-taining, shocking, bizarre thing” she’d ever read. Perhaps that’s why the R-rated genetic-mutation thriller set off a wild bidding war after it debuted at Sundance in January. Polley and Adrien Brody play geneticists who mix DNA from humans and other animals to create a new creature. Sounds like The Island of Dr. Moreau, only different. ”The film defies category in every way,” says Polley.
