Craig Zobel (director of the incendiary Compliance) cast his latest Sundance favorite with just three attractive and talented actors. Set a year after a cataclysmic disaster, this drama centers around a young Appalachian woman, Ann (Margot Robbie), who learns she’s not the last person alive when she meets Loomis (Chiwetel Ejiofor), an engineer struggling with the effects of contamination. When the pair encounters a third stranger, swarthy Caleb (Chris Pine), an uneasy love triangle develops in this slow-burning morality tale that unfolds in a decimated, post-apocalyptic world.
