Education as it is organised today is a system for fitting children out to be servile adults. They are trained to serve, either in the corporation or the bureaucracy. This is called a utilitarian education, and its end purpose is a "good job". A lucky few slip through the net and, against the odds, create a somewhat more romantic arrangement for themselves: they are the self-employed – the artists, the entrepreneurs, the wanderers. But most are condemned to a life of more or less well-paid servility: at the last count, there were 25.3 million people in the UK with jobs. Sadly, this figure is on the rise.

For where else is there to go? The answer, perhaps, lies no longer in aiming for the head, but getting inside it. Or at least that's what Jonathan Levine's new zom-rom-com, Warm Bodies, suggests. A film that is leading the pack in telling us that zombies are people too.
