Story


"Seeking a Friend for the End of the World" stars Golden Globe Award winner Steve Carell and Academy Award nominee Keira Knightley and is the feature directorial debut of screenwriter Lorene Scafaria. Set in a too-near future, the movie explores what people will do when humanity's last days are at hand. As the respective journeys of Dodge (Mr. Carell) and Penny (Ms. Knightley) converge, the two spark to each other and their outlooks - if not the world's - brighten.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..achieves the colorless tedium of a safe, dozy dream of catastrophe instead of anything like the real deal..”
by Mark Holcomb [Village Voice]
“..Carell and Knightley give it their bittersweet best. But I never rooted for them as a couple, never felt a chemistry in their bond..”
by Peter Travers [Rolling Stone]
“..an unusual film, resistant to the usual end-of-mankind cliches. The script is full of surprises..”
by Rex Reed [New York Observer]
