0Throughout the film, we're shown the news updates on the asteroid and how close it is to the Earth, along with a graphic telling us how many days are left until the end. As Dodge and Penny travel through the States(well, a few, anyway), they encounter a crazy bunch of individuals in a restaurant aptly named 'Friendsy's'; a Police Officer who won't let his duty go despite impending doom; and other people. Who I won't mention on account of Spoiler Alert. SAFFTEOTW (thats Seeking a Friend For The End of The World, for those who aren't following) is an emotional roller-coaster which delivers some serious, hard hitting, emotional scenes which, 90% of the time are led by both Knightly and Carell. These scenes were the most memorable in the film, notably the beach, and final scene. these are the scenes which seriously made the film what it was, as well as the surprising appearance by Martin Sheen. The first half of the film is primarily humour-driven, with some odd sombre moments here and there. The latter part, however, the film concentrates on the characters' more serious sides, like Penny's family, and Dodge's past. It's here where the film really takes a toll on the ol' tear ducts. It's also where Knightly really displays her emotional capabilities, with the exchanges between herself and Carell. Seeking a Friend For The End of The World is a nicely written emotional pseudo-comedy with brilliantly added spells of raw emotion for good measure. Carell and Knightly perform well together, but Carell leads in this charming film about Love, Friendship and Alienation.
