Seeking a Friend for the End of the World

seeking-a-friend-for-the-end-of-the-world-movie-wallpaper-4-1024x7681It finally happened. I watched the film, Seeking a Friend for the End of the World starring Steve Carell and Keira Knightley. It was the perfect end of the world film.

Most films with a similar plot would focus on the action, CGI and mass destruction (potentially a hero who tries to save the world). Think again with this movie. It humanized the experience in a way that I’ve never seen in a film before. From the opening scene you knew that the world was going to end, so it allowed for the characters in the film to deal with that news head first over a short period of time. 

This film captures the romance, sadness, moments of happiness, humor and closure all in 102 minutes. Steve and Keira both display who their characters are in a simply, brilliant way. There is no over acting or over action, which I love. These two take you on a twisted, end of the world type of adventure.

After watching the film it of course makes you think how you would spend your final days on earth and would it be as full circle as it was for Steve and Keira’s characters?

I recommend this movie!

 

What would you do if you knew the world was ending?
