Director: Lorene Scafaria
In three weeks an asteroid is about to destroy all life on Earth. Sounds like time for a road trip.
Down-at-heel insurance salesman Dodge (Steve Carell) is having a bad end of the world - when the announcement comes, his wife leaves him to be with her secret lover. Feeling suicidal, he becomes a reluctant romantic adviser to his off-kilter neighbour, Penny (Keira Knightley). But when their building is ransacked, the two embark on a cross-country journey in an effort to find Dodge's childhood sweetheart.
Seeking a Friend for the End of the World is the directorial debut from screenwriting wunderkind Lorene Scafaria. With a whip smart script, star-studded cast and a scintillating comic chemistry between Carell and Knightley, the death of mankind has never seemed so sweet.
"In our summertime-movie world of aliens and superheroes who look all too familiar, Dodge and Penny look all the rarer in their precious humanity." - Entertainment Weekly
