Seeking a Friend for the End of the World is a 2012 comedy drama film directed and written by Lorene Scafaria as her directorial debut. It tells the story of Dodge, a recently divorced man, looking for a meaningful way to spend his last 21 days on Earth before an asteroid wipes out all of humanity. It stars Steve Carell and Keira Knightley. Somewhere in the related videos section of films like The Way Way Back (2013) and Dan In Real Life (2007), I found this little independant one. While very funny at times, Steve Carell can also play the drama roles. The ones where he becomes the victim of some type of loss in his life yet in the end finds a way to be happy.
