Consumed is one of the first films of its kind – a gripping, and often terrifying, dramatic thriller set in the complex world of Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs). Sophie (Zoe Lister-Jones, The Other Guys) is a working-class single mother who goes on a journey to uncover the cause of her son’s mysterious illness.
“Consumed makes a thriller out of the politics of food.” – Ted Johnson, Variety
