Contagion (2011)

This is a solid movie. Beth Emhoff (Gwyneth Paltrow) travels to Hong Kong for a business trip and catches a deadly infection. After she gets home, her husband rushes her to the hospital and is shocked when she suddenly passes away. Mitch Emhoff (Matt Damon) is put into quarantine for a few days, until it becomes apparent that he is immune to the disease. Worried about the safety of his teenage daughter, he forces her to stay inside the house for several months and won't even allow her to see her boyfriend. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention initially suspects that the virus is a form of terrorism and they rush to find a cure for the illness.

Matt Damon, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Jude Law had previously worked together in The Talented Mr. Ripley (1999).
