A Cure for Fake News

My roommates and I decided to go see the film “A Cure for Wellness” despite the not so flattering reviews and the under performance at the box office so far. The movie is about a wellness center that uses a miracle cure that isn’t what it seems. It was a good but extremely weird movie,…
