Warm Bodies: When a zombie falls in love with a girl, it's awkward to say the least
The zombies that keep popping up on the screen and the page these days symbolise everything from socio-economic oppression to technology-fuelled alienation, or so it is said.
But the star of the latest zombie apocalypse has a simpler theory: The unlovable ghouls are a metaphor for how hard it is to approach the opposite sex.
The movie Warm Bodies, a No. 1 film at the United States box office, opens in Singapore on Thursday.
In it, British actor Nicholas Hoult is R, a boy who meets and falls hopelessly in love with a girl named Julie.
