Marina Antunes [Celluloid 02.24.20] post apocalyptic



If there was a checklist of items to include in a movie that spoke to me directly, Only would be right at the top. Post-apocalyptic, mysterious, dramatic, beautiful and focused on a woman. Though in the case of Takashi Doscher's sophomore effort, it's more about the lack of women.


The set-up is eerily similar to Light of My Life (trailer) and though both films tell the story of a world without women, they do so in very different ways. Light of My Life takes place long after the women have dies and has a man at its centre while Only unfolds just as the world is starting to lose women in mass numbers and the story is centrally focused on Eva, played by Freida Pinto, and her struggle to not only survive but also to live.


The film also co-stars Leslie Odom Jr..



I love the trailer for Only which really plays into post-apocalyptic tropes including snowing ash, but more than that, I love that the trailer doesn't supply a lot of answers and sticks instead to outlining the dramatic basics and leaving the rest for the movie itself.


Only opens theatrically and will be available on VOD on March 6.




Recommended Release: Children of Men
