SEEKING A FRIEND FOR THE END OF THE WORLD
Beginning at the End
Well before the whole world and/or one's own life might end, every one
of us ponders how we will face that moment.
Steve Carell says, "I think Lorene Scafaria's story beautifully transcends
aspects of the normalcy of life. The movie is about finding the value of
life, and finding what makes you happy."
Scafaria reflects, "Time is the great equalizer, and our time here is
limited. Everyone can relate to that, and hopefully learn from it. One of
the most precious things you can offer to another person is your time."
Producer Steve Golin says, "I feel everyone harbors the beliefs that
somebody is out there for them and that options exist."
Producer Mark Roybal adds, "Seeking a Friend for the End of the World
is about coming together at the most crucial time - at the end of time. It's
profound, funny, and uplifting."
Keira Knightley offers, "For these two, it's about what suddenly becomes
important. I think what's actually being said here is, why do we not live as
we should live? Why do we not see what things are important? Why do
we not spend time with the people that we love? We act as if we have
'tomorrow and tomorrow and tomorrow,' but what if we don't?
"That's why I found the story so optimistic; aside from the occasional
riot, positive things will come forth from humanity at the turning point."
