If a meteor was certain to crash on Earth, bringing the end of the world with it, would you head out on a road trip to find your first love with your neighbor? That's what Steve Carell and Keira Knightley are up to in the upcoming dramedy Seeking a Friend for the End of the World. Of course, with the apocalypse looming, it's not your average road trip, as the pair encounter a world filled with varied responses to the end of days, including a over-friendly restaurant waitstaff, a by-the-book police officer, and your typical apocalypse looters and rioters.
Seeking a Friend for the End of the World is the feature directorial debut of screenwriter Lorene Scafaria, who wrote the similarly long-titled Nick and Nora's Infinite Playlist. The movie co-stars Patton Oswalt (Young Adult), Connie Britton (American Horror Story) and Adam Brody (Cop Out).
Here's the synopsis for Seeking a Friend for the End of the World.
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 (Carell) and Penny (Knightley) converge, the two spark to each other and their outlooks — if not the world's — brighten.
