About the Movie
Margot Robbie, Chiwetel Ejiofor and Chris Pine deliver incredible performances in this intense thriller based on the award winning book. In the wake of a nuclear war, a young woman (Robbie) survives on her own, fearing she may actually be the last woman on earth. Soon, she discovers a distraught scientist (Ejiofor) nearly mad from radiation exposure and his desperate search for others and they form a fragile, imperative strand of trust. But when a stranger (Pine) enters the valley, their precarious bond begins to unravel.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: This minimalist but deeply affecting morality play slowly tugs you in.
Fresh: Craig Zobel's film asks what form humanity takes when there's (practically) no one looking. The three actors work wonders and raise provocative questions about reinventing the planet in microcosm.
Rotten: An intriguing set-up yields a disappointingly ponderous payoff in Craig Zobel's post-apocalyptic drama, "Z for Zachariah."
Fresh: The triangle that "Zachariah" sketches among the last three folks on earth is all too human.
Great cast leads the way
Can't go wrong with these 3!
Smart and engaging
It’s so rare for post apocalyptic films to explore the first generation of theoretical survivors in a profound way. This film is of small scope but that’s it’s strength and the decisions of it’s characters are plausible and engaging. It’s an excellent psychodrama not an FX spectacular. Buyer beware.
B for Butthurt
"We have time" says Mr Loomis…
And with no sense of urgency, this movie goes nowhere fast. Nothing is really at stake, except who will get butthurt in the end.
Getting these 3 great actors to sign on for this snorefest is the only real achievement here.
Most Passive aggressive film ever made.
