Z FOR ZACHARIAH is a post-apocalyptic sci-fi film directed by Craig Zobel (Great World of Sound, Compliance) and written by Nissar Modi, based on the book of the same name by Robert C. O’Brien. Premiered at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival, the film stars Chiwetel Ejiofor, Margot Robbie and Chris Pine.
In the wake of a nuclear war, a young woman (Robbie) survives on her own, fearing she may actually be the proverbial last woman on earth, until she discovers the most astonishing sight of her life: another human being. A distraught scientist (Ejiofor), he’s nearly been driven mad by radiation exposure and his desperate search for others. A fragile, imperative strand of trust connects them. But when a stranger (Pine) enters the valley, their precarious bond begins to unravel.
