Storyline

In a kill-or-be-killed world where starvation is rife and strangers are always dangerous, The Survivalist lives off the grid, and by his wits. When a starving woman and her teenage daughter discover his forest refuge, his loneliness drives him to overcome his suspicion and strike a bargain with them in return for bed and board. But as desire becomes stronger than necessity, the exchange becomes an uneasy, ongoing arrangement which threatens not only his carefully constructed world but also his life.

Quotes

[first lines]
Kathryn: [appearing outside his shack] My name is Kathryn. And this is my daughter Milja. Would you be able to spare some of your crop?
Survivalist: [no]
Kathryn: We can offer something in exchange.
[shows seeds]
Kathryn: A real treasure, then. We have legumes, rusticas, strong varieties. These could boost your yield.
[tosses over a package of seeds]
Kathryn: Surely you can spare something. There's more than enough.
Survivalist: That's what they all thought.
Kathryn: Well, then perhaps... Perhaps, we could stay the night.

All acting is on point and it is definitely not predictable
15 February 2016 | by jamestrucksessSee all my reviews

Definitely a good movie to see. I think the Survivalist says maybe 20 lines in the whole movie but he plays the role perfect. I like the fact that it was hard to predict which direction the movie is going. One thing I am sure everyone hates is to waste their life watching a ridiculous movie that is so predictable where they even throw in bad acting. This won't take you there. At first I thought it was going to be like The Walking Dead but I was happy to see that it was far from that nonsense. The Walking Dead is just another overrated TV show. Enjoy.
