Seeking a Friend for the End of the World
Director: Lorene Scafaria
Cast: Steve Carell, Keira Knightley, Adam Brody, Derek Luke, William Petersen, Connie Britton, Rob Corddry, Melanie Lynskey, Martin Sheen

As a massive asteroid is about to hit the Earth, Dodge is abandoned by his wife. While the clock is ticking, the forlorn Dodge ends up on a road trip with Penny, his next-door neighbour. Lorene Scafaria's directorial debut is dark romantically flavoured comedy about the end of the world. The subject matter is grim, but her film offers some laughs on the way to the moving finale. Steve Carell and Keira Knightley give likeable performances in the lead.
