It opens in a limited theatrical release today, and has been reviewed favorably, with a healthy 81% rating on movie review aggregator site Rotten Tomatoes. It’s a film on my to-see list, so I’ll likely check it out this weekend.
In the meantime, below are 3 clips from the film, featuring stars Chiwetel Ejiofor, along with Chris Pine and, Margot Robbie, in Material Pictures’ and Zik Zak Filmworks’ “Z For Zachariah” – a post-apocalyptic romantic triad about a woman (played by Robbie) who, in the wake of a nuclear war, survives on her own, fearing she may actually be the proverbial last woman on earth, until she discovers the most astonishing sight of her life: another human being. A distraught scientist (played by Ejiofor), he’s nearly been driven mad by radiation exposure, and his desperate search for others. They 2 develop a relationship. But when another survivor (Chris Pine) also turns up, their precarious bond begins to unravel.
The film is directed by Craig Zobel (“Compliance”) from a script penned by Nissar Modi.
