Quick Verdict: It’s the end of the world, but not as we know it
I’m going through a bit of a apocalypse phase. I Think We’re Alone Now stars Peter Dinklage as Del, the last man on Earth. He spends his day surviving and cleaning up the town. Although alone, Del is content to continue in this way.
Things get complicated however when Grace, played by Elle Fanning, arrives in town. Now not the sole survivor, Del must learn to live with someone who doesn’t necessarily share his views on the ideal way to continue with life.
It’s another take on the apocalypse that is character driven. It’s also good to see two characters so far apart from each other forced to exist together. Their relationship is so interesting to watch and develop.
It’s directed by Reed Morano and is her second feature film after her debut Meadowland. The film is beautifully shot, and I absolutely loved the scene in the library when the fireworks go off. Her use of natural light in shots is great and looks amazing.
I really liked this film, and the final third was unexpected. The only downside was I had the Tiffany song in my head throughout.
