'Seek' Out Keira & Steve's New Movie
Keira Knightley and Steve Carell lead an all-star cast (Martin Sheen, Connie Britton, William Petersen, Gillian Jacobs, Derek Luke, Melanie Lynskey, Adam Brody, Mark Moses, Patton Oswalt, Rob Corddry and Jim O'Heir) in the splendid new rom-com-dram Seeking A Friend For The End of the World.
Almost told in a series of vignettes as Keira and Steve's characters flee the increasingly dangerous city in search of lost loves and salvation, Seeking not only presents an exceptional look at the anhedonia modern society foists upon modern man, but also the year's most unexpected love story.
Keira is luminous in her first balls-out comedic role (despite the character requiring her to shed a lot of tears) while Steve continues to position himself as an excellent every-man with his most resonant role to date.
If you can't tell, I loved this movie. A lot. In many ways, it reminded me of Away We Go, 2009's hauntingly beautiful roadtrip movie, starring John Krasinski & Maya Rudolph. But with much more comedy as you can tell from a pair of sneak peek clips, featuring comedian T.J. Miller and Community star Gillian Jacobs.
Seeking A Friend For The End of the World opens June 22.
