What happens when you meet your one true love right before the whole world falls apart?
Ewan McGregor and Eva Green’s mysterious new flick “Perfect Sense,” directed by David Mackenzie, is two parts love story, one part post-apocalyptic horror. The movie, which co-stars Ewen Bremner, Stephen Dillane, Denis Lawson and Connie Nielsen, will have it’s world premiere next week at the Sundance Film Festival.
The trailer really hides a lot of what’s going down in the world, if you’d like to know more (and spoil a little of the mystery for yourself) here’s the full synopsis:
When Susan, an epidemiologist, reemerges from an affair gone sour, she encounters a peculiar patient—a Glasgow truck driver who experienced a sudden, uncontrollable crying fit. Now he is calm, but he has lost his sense of smell. Susan learns there are 11 cases like him in Glasgow, 7 in Aberdeen, 5 in Dundee, and 18 in Edinburgh. In fact, Great Britain has 100 cases, with additional ones reported in France, Belgium, Italy, and Spain, and they all appeared in the last 24 hours.
Although Susan’s encounter with Michael, a local restaurant chef, holds the promise of new love, the world is about to change dramatically. People across the globe begin to suffer strange symptoms, affecting the emotions, then the senses.
