Samuel Goldwyn Films and Phase 4 Films have partnered up to distribute "Goodbye World" in the US. The film, which screened in competition at the 2013 Los Angeles Film Festival and features a large cast of notable stars including Adrian Grenier ("Entourage"), Gaby Hoffmann ("Louie"), Ben McKenzie ("Southland") and rapper Kid Cudi, is set to open next Spring.
"Goodbye World is a unique apocalyptic movie about what happens between a cataclysmic event and the trials of survival to come in the new world -- that time when you decide who you will stand with and who you will fight," said director Denis Henry Hennelly.
The official plot synopsis:
James and Lily live off the grid, raising their young daughter in a cocoon of comfort and sustainability. When a mysterious mass text ripples its way across the country, triggering a crippling, apocalyptic cyber attack, their home transitions from sheltered modern oasis to a fortress for the estranged old friends that show up at their door for protection and community. The unexpected reunion--abundant with revelry and remembrances, generously enhanced by organic wine and weed--is quickly undermined by the slights of the past, the spark of lingering flirtations and the threat of a locally grown new world order.
