About the Movie
The feature directorial debut of screenwriter Lorene Scafaria stars Golden Globe Award winner Steve Carell and Academy Award nominee Keira Knightley. 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, their outlooks – if not the world’s – brighten.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: This is a romantic comedy for people who don't like rom-coms. There's no chance of a happy ending, but its tender mercies speak volumes.
Fresh: "Seeking a Friend for the End of the World," a half-tender portrait of two very lonely hearts in the closing weeks of humanity's run on Earth, is a strange movie.
Rotten: It's too bad the movie chose to go so gentle into that good night.
Rotten: "Seeking a Friend for the End of the World'' has its laughs, but pretty much every single one of them is in the trailer.
luv luv this movie
depressing yet managed to pull my heart strings......
if you like to ride a roller coaster and not the ferris wheel,please hop on. I was astonished at the emotional and in depth analysis that these actors did. Mr Carrel has and displays an inner fire of the character wanting to speek out. Mrs. Knightley brings out the best in her performance to show a person without outer emotion what it really feels like.. Both complimant each other extremely well. Hats off to who decided on the casting .Wow, great all around. The scene shot at the resturant, great pieces all fitting together. excellent movie. THIS MOVIE IS A CULT CLASSIC.
Not worth it
This is not Steve C.`s style, although he obviously got the part because of his role in Dan in Real Life. However, Keira Knightley is almost constantly annoying, although the script does not offer her much to work with. Still, someone like Natalie Portman would have been much better for this role, and would have probably made the character less bipolar and plain idiotic at times. The part about Glen should have ended on the cutting room floor, as it adds nothing to the movie, except minutes. Bottom line - zero chemistry between the two main characters, and no explanation why they end in an improbable relationship.
