Seeking A Friend For The End Of The World Is a Different Sort Of Movie

Seeking A Friend For The End Of The World is a good movie but it is also a different sort of movie than I expected it to be.  This movie which stars Keira Knightley and Steve Carell is about two people who form an unlikely relationship in the midst of the world coming to an end.

In Seeking A Friend For The End Of The World Steve Carell’s character Dodge has recently been left by his wife and is coming to terms with her absence as an asteroid takes aim toward Earth.  There is no hope of derailing the asteroid and life as they know it is more than likely over.  Dodge is alternating between mourning a lost relationship and sadness that he faces the end of the world alone.  When Dodge happens to find Penny, played by Keira Knightley, one evening when returning home he finds himself being drawn into her zest and eccentric personality.  Penny is crying because she is in the midst of a break up herself and is very distraught that she can’t make it back to her home in England to be with her beloved family members before the world ends.

Penny gives Dodge some mail that had come to her apartment accidentally and in the mail is a letter from Dodge’s old flame.  Dodge decided to set out to find his old girlfriend and hopefully be reunited with her so that he does not face the end of the world alone.  He is seeking a friend for the end of the world.

As he sets out on his venture Penny ends up with him.  They travel by various methods to reach Dodge’s old girlfriend but something is happening along the way.  Sparks begin to fly and they begin to fall in love.  However, Dodge wants more than his own selfish wants and thinks of Penny’s wishes.  He does the unselfish thing and Penny does something unique of her own.

This movie will touch your heart and may even bring a tear to your eye.  Seeking A Friend For The End Of The World is worth watching.
