A Cure for Wellness movie quotes take viewers inside the film about an employee who discovers a strange wellness center while searching for his lost company CEO. The horror thriller was directed by Gore Verbinski using a screenplay by Justin Haythe based off a story the two created. A Cure for Wellness opened theatrically in the United States on February 17, 2017.
In A Cure for Wellness, Mr. Lockhart (Dane DeHaan) is called into an executive meeting where he learns that Mr. Pembroke, his company's CEO, has left a nonsensical note and disappeared. The executives task Lockhart with retrieving Pembroke and send him to a remote wellness spa in the Swiss Alps to do so. Lockhart takes on the mission and heads to the spa but things only get stranger from there.
Upon retrieving Pembroke, Lockhart is injured after his car collides with a deer. He's sent back to the wellness center to recover. There, the facility director Volmer (Jason Isaacs) diagnoses Lockhart with the strange illness affecting others at the spa. While Volmer tries to convince Lockhart he's insane and in need of the special cure, Lockhart learns more about the facility, including some pretty scary happenings.
Bring Mr. Pembroke Back
Pembroke: There is a sickness inside us, rising like the bile that leaves a bitter taste in the back of our throats. It's there in every one of you seated around the table. Only when we know what ails us, can we hope to find the cure.
Executive: What do you make of that?
Mr. Lockhart: Clearly he's lost his mind.
Mr. Wilson: Our thoughts exactly
Executive: We'd like you to go to Switzerland and bring Mr. Pembroke back to us.
Sitting in a board room with executives from his company, Mr. Lockhart reads a letter left by CEO Mr. Pembroke in these A Cure for Wellness movie quotes. Everyone thinks that Mr. Pembroke has gone insane, including Mr. Lockhart, who is tasked with finding Mr. Pembroke.
Accept the Diagnosis
Volmer: Accept the diagnosis and you will see it's wonderful here.
Using words he's likely used with other patients, Volmer urges Dr. Lockhart to accept the diagnosis he's been given and enjoy the facility. But Lockhart doesn't feel he is crazy, despite what Volmer tells him.
You Said No One Ever Leaves
Mr. Lockhart: You said no one ever leaves. What happens to them?
Once Mr. Lockhart realizes that something is definitely awry at the wellness center, he returns to talk to Hannah in the hopes that she will give him answers. But unfortunately for Mr. Lockhart in this A Cure for Wellness movie quote, Hannah is drinking the Kool-Aid and not much help.
A Process of Purification
Volmer: What we offer here is a process of purification away from pressures of the modern world.
Volmer: You plan to take Mr. Pembroke back with you?
Mr. Lockhart: Is that a problem?
Volmer: He's a patient, not a prisoner.
When Mr. Lockhart arrives at the remote wellness center, he's introduced to the facility by Volmer. While Volmer claims there's nothing awry with what they do and Mr. Pembroke can leave at any time, Mr. Lockhart isn't exactly sold.
