Global pandemics seem to be making a real comeback — on the screen, that is. With Contagion earning the top spot at this past weekend’s box office, that might be enough for this kind of disaster movie to find another place in the culture, but a different disease film is also coming soon; the thing is, this one is something of a romantic drama.
Called Perfect Sense, it stars Ewan McGregor and Eva Green as two people who decide to fall in love just as the world is coming to an end. While that sounds like it could be plenty sappy, a new trailer from Empire makes the picture seem like an affecting, well-crafted romance that takes things in an unusual direction. Director David Mackenize exhibited a knack for relationships in Young Adam (which also starred McGregor), and our review from Sundance indicates that he more or less pulled this off. This looks kind of terrific, in my opinion, leaving me with a sense of anticipation that I didn’t expect.
