Z for Zachariah

Z-for-Zachariah-Movie-poster-The most haunting shot in Interstellar came when the characters played by Matthew McConaughey and Matt Damon are fighting each other in an alien world. The camera slowly pans out to reveal two tiny figures unable to resolve their differences, surrounded by a vast new world.

Z for Zachariah attempts to explore the idea that humans are so poor at being selfless by pairing one attractive young woman with two older men who have not seen a member of the opposite sex in months, because this is a nuclear apocalypse.

Such great promise; such lousy execution.
