exPress-o Film Club: Seeking a Friend for the End of the World

Tuesday, November 27, 2012

Have you seen Seeking a Friend for the End of the World? What did you think? It's a very new film that we watched over the Thanksgiving weekend. It's one of those movies that 2 minutes into it, you can not help but fall utterly and completely in love with it. Even though Steve Carell and Keira Knightley are the worst match on paper, in the movie they just work like butter and bread - smooth, fulfilling and making you crave for more. It’s a story of two people who lived in the same building for the past few years but never before spoke to each other till the day the whole world got the news that it’s ending. His wife left him, and Keira's character was stuck in a hopeless relationship...and the only thing they wanted was to spend the last days with someone they truly cared about. It's a heartfelt, beautiful, sweet film when you just need a bit of romance, a dash of hope and a whole lot of wonderful. Sounds like a film for you?

Bits and bobs:
- Steve is the vioce of the evil villan with a soft side in Despicable Me. (It's such a gem).
- Steve's real-life wife Nancy Carell played the leaving wife.
- Keira and Steve talking about the movie.
-  Oh boy, "Between two Ferns" with Steve Carell and Zach Galifianakis:)
- Giggle, Ellen's revenge on Steve.
- Wasn't Keira amazing in the Chanel Coco Mademoiselle ad? (I loved her hairdo).
- Have you seen Pride and Prejudice? She was incredible!
- John Krasinski on Steve . It's so funny!
- Keira and Ellen having a tea party:)
- How to make the most of porcelain skin like Keira's.
- Keira and Vogue - Oh la la!
- Keira had a little role in Star Wars: Episode 1 in 1999. She played Sabé:)
- Steve also nailed it in Date Night alongside Tina Fey.
- Also, Melanie Lynskey aka Rose from Two and a Half Men played brilliantly.

P.S: And a few other films that rock my world right now.

I recently caught this movie and I will say it was very well done. Keira can really show her emotions in her facial expressions and you really believe she is in the predicament that she is in...=)

For example, don't substitute a lip-liner for an eye-liner because you may be exposing your eyes to contamination from your mouth, or to color additives that are not approved for use in the area of the eye, warns the FDA.. [url=]homing dress sale[/url] ithfndks
