Z for Zachariah

Genre: Sci-fi, Drama, Thriller; Starring: Chiwetel Ejiofor, Margot Robbie, Chris Pine; Director: Craig Zobel; Release Date Wide: 08/28/2015; Runtime (in minutes): 98; MPAA Rating: PG-13

Margot Robbie charms as Ann, a lonely survivor of nuclear fallout who meets another (Chiwetel Ejiofor). Their relationship is tested, however, when a stranger (Chris Pine) arrives, forming a love triangle. The limited scope of the apocalyptic story could have made for a thoughtful parable about human nature and race, but the lack of drama and heat keeps Z for Zachariah joyless without much despair. It’s the end of the world as we know it, and you’ll feel bored. C+
