THE SURVIVALIST tells the story of a man who lives alone in the woods for seven years after America collapses and famine results in a mass die-off.
When a starving woman and her teenage daughter show up, they offer a bargain–the girl’s love for his protection and food. This exchange forms the basis of a fragile ongoing relationship.
I love apocalyptic films that show the world falling, with big set pieces, but this type of film is very interesting too–survival in a world that is very small and life is lived day to day and close to the brink. A world where ordinary people face horrible moral and ethical decisions that reveal human nature.
