The Focus Features branch of Universal Studios will be releasing Lorene Scafaria’s end-of-the-world dramedy Seeking a Friend for the End of the World on Blu-Ray in October.
It’s not every day when you see an independent filmmaker like Lorene Scafaria make a film as bleak as Seeking a Friend for the End of the World. Starring Steve Carell and Keira Knightley, the story revolves around the life of two individuals that find true love in the grimmest of situations.
Jonathan R. Lack absolutely loved the film and he sang its praises in his review of the film:
Seeking a Friend for the End of the World is one of my favorite movies of the year; I loved every minute of it, especially any time Carell and Knightley get to share the screen and talk. This is the rare apocalyptic drama that is positively inspiring.
The film will be coming to Blu-Ray in a Blu-Ray/DVD/Digital Copy combo pack, with the following bonus material:
- Feature Commentary: With writer/director Lorene Scafaria, her mother Gail Scafaria, producer Joy Gorman Wettels, and actors Adam Brody and Patton Oswalt
