Z for Zachariah
Craig Zobel's post-apocalyptic movie Z for Zachariah happily does away with mutated monsters, evil power mongers, chases, explosions, or grisly effects, and simply, effectively focuses on the deeds and emotions of three people. After some kind of nuclear disaster that has left the world a radioactive wasteland, a pretty farmer, Ann (Margot Robbie), has been able to survive, somehow untouched by the destruction. She grows food, hunts, and gets water from a well. A stranger wearing a radiation suit, Loomis (Chiwetel Ejiofor), stumbles into her world. She nurses the sick man back to health. Loomis, a skilled engineer, then helps Ann prepare for the coming winter, teaching her things and building new energy sources.
