Latest news from Seeking A Friend For The End Of The World


As critics and film writers pull together their lists of summer movies, many are putting Wes Anderson’s magical MOONRISE KINGDOM and Lorene Scarfaria’s apocalyptic comedy SEEKING A FRIEND FOR THE END OF THE WORLD at the top. Recently Ruthe Stein in the Houston Chronicle article “Small films with big potential” picked both films. On “Why See It,” Stein writes about MOONRISE KINGDOM: “Director and Houston native Wes Anderson also made the memorable Rushmore starring Murray. This is their sixth collaboration, so you figure they're simpatico. Script co-written by Roman Coppola (son of Francis, brother of Sofia).”   As for SEEKING A FRIEND FOR THE END OF THE WORLD, Stein writes, “Carell has chosen his feature films well. Director Lorene Scafaria wrote the sweet Nick & Norah's Infinite Playlist.”  Brent Lang at Reuters also made MOONRISE KINGDOM one of his “Seven hidden gems to see this summer movie season.”  As Lang says, “Nothing brings memories of summer flooding back like camp. Thus, Rushmore director Wes Anderson's latest focuses on a pair of young campers who fall in love and run away together prompting a town-wide search.”
