A few critics got to see post-apocalyptic indie film Z for Zachariah before its debut to the public, and here were some of their responses to the movie on Twitter.
Z FOR ZACHARIAH is really interesting, and beautifully acted. Weird gender and race politics, but maybe that's the point?

"z for zachariah" is also the first film i've seen whose central narrative was made tragic by the characters' inability to have a threesome.

Walking the Park City streets, screaming like a madman about how brilliant Chiwetel Ejiofor is in Z for Zachariah. Loved it. #Sundance

Z For Zachariah: post-apoc, love triangle/human nature drama that's admirably patient &composed but telegraphs its conflicts/ inevitability.

Z FOR ZACHARIAH (Zobel): Ruralized remake of the THE WORLD THE FLESH THE DEVIL loses some of that film's power, mostly because it's 2015.

Here’s a clip from the movie of Robbie, Ejiofor, and Pine listening to music, sharing a few laughs, exchanging meaningful glances, and dancing.
