What Would you do if the world was going to end in 21days and eventually will be sooner?, Carry on as normal?, Go out with a sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll binge?, Watch Justin Bieber until your ears hurt?

With a Texas-sized meteorite about to hit the earth insurance salesman Dodge Petersen(Steve Carell) picks the first option, Fortunately a chance encounter with a manic dream pixie called Penny(Kiera Knightley) and a dog names sorry convincing him to go on a road trip that'll reunite him with the lost love of his life.

This was actually an remarkably promising directorial debut for Scafaria, A heartfelt romantic- comedy that turns a predictable story into a smart, pleasant jaunt, Brilliantly sweet and pleasant, and it was consistently entertaining, Arguably one of the best movie this year.

Consensus: "Seeking A Friend For The End Of The World" is warm, sweet,gentle and whimsical it inherits gorgeous cast, exhilirating plot and beautiful and outstanding performance, It will make you sob,laugh, love over and over again, An unpredictabl chemistry from Carell and Knightley, probably the most profound and poignant on- screen collaboration this year,it was really moving albeit it's final act.
