Synopsis

Release Date:

October 23,2012

ALSO AVAILABLE ON DVD!

Although a the central relationship at times seems more like a plot convenience than an actual love affair, Seeking A Friend For The End of the World is a pleasant, somewhat surprising and often funny look at how people might react knowing that the world is soon to end. The film has a number of cameos, some of them rather odd (especially one by William Petersen that makes you scratch your head and question his decision to leave CSI), that often make you think that the filmmakers didn't have enough confidence in their material so they decided to try and make you like the film by cramming it full of people you like. Overall, Seeking a Friend For The End of The World is worth watching - something few people did during its theatrical run, so check it out!

Steve Carell and Keira Knightley lead an all-star cast in this clever and heartwarming comedy that explores the crazy things people do when humanity’s last days are at hand. Set in a too-near future, two neighbors, Dodge (Carell) and Penny (Knightley), react in their own unique ways to the announcement that a 70-mile-wide asteroid is en route to the Earth. He wants to return to his first love. She just wants to get back to her family. As the unlikely companions’ respective journeys converge, their outlooks – if not the world’s – brighten in surprising and hilarious ways. The feature directorial debut of screenwriter Lorene Scafaria (Nick & Norah’s Infinite Playlist), Seeking a Friend for the End of the World is being hailed as “funny and wonderfully poetic! Steve Carell and Keira Knightley are superb.” (Claudia Puig, USA Today)
