Trivia

The focus in pre-production was to build a sense of trust, familiarity and rapport between actor Martin Freeman and eleven year-old first timer actress Simone Landers. When it came time to shoot, co-director Yolanda Ramke said: "Freeman was a wonderful creative partner and a genuine delight to work with. He was collaborative, but just as importantly, he came to set every day with questions and a point of view and a determination to dig for the reality in the material. He had no interest in playing obvious or contrived choices, and even less interest in looking cool or heroic. He was far more drawn to Andy's flaws and weaknesses, and embracing those to create a more authentic, multi-faceted character." See more »

I'm no movie critic, but this movie had everything I wanted and more. Clever, genuinely believable and a stunning performance from Martin Freeman. If you want an intelligent movie about what might happen if the world had a pandemic without lots of unnecessary bloody gore, this is right up there.
