How to not survive when the power goes out.

At first I thought it was going to be little interesting to see how they all survive, but as the movie goes on you find out the characters are the kind that would not survive any kind of apocalypse in the long term. If that's the point of this movie, then they nailed it. The movie might seem like it has a good ending, but in reality they wouldn't last a week with an infant without a decent shelter.

Deciding to burn the house down because of 'black mold' and then living in a tree stump while it's beating down rain (and winter is coming soon) is one of the stupidest things I've ever seen. They could have fixed the roof eventually, or at least weatherproofed it. Or they could have just found another house, since they were all abandoned. Instead they decide to live outside with an infant. Just plain stupidity.

Performances: Great, Story: Okay, Climax: WTF? [+46%]

While the title and synopsis suggest a survival drama, this movie in fact gives you very little detail on the actual measures taken to 'survive' in a situation of prolonged power outage. Two sisters, Nell and Eva, are left orphaned after their dad succumbs to the injuries he received from a chainsaw accident, leaving them helpless at their house with no electricity.

This is a story that tries to highlight the bond between the two sisters played by Ellen Page and Evan Rachel Wood who deliver terrific and above-average performances respectively. As such, the film packs an emotional punch but fails terribly as a survival thriller. For instance, one wonders how they look as gleeful and healthy as they are, even after a year of no-power (the reason for which isn't explained clearly either). How were they able to procure clean water? Surely, they must have decided on some constraints in the quantity of food they eat. But this doesn't seem to take any toll on their bodies (not even a minor blemish); Page's cheeks look round and rosy as ever.

They must have had to hunt for food on more instances than what's shown in the film. They should have had to fend off more intruders than just the one guy who ends up raping the (supposedly) older sister. There are a plethora of possibilities that could have taken place in the lives of the two sisters. But alas, the director doesn't seem interested in expounding any of it.

Logical reasoning does take a backseat too often, in between the highly emotional moments. Like Eva almost springing into a comfortable upright position just after she has gone through a painful delivery. Like Eva deciding to go ahead with childbearing after being raped. Like the posh house that starts falling apart in like a year and half of not-so- great maintenance (so much for modern architecture!). Like using their last available bit of fuel to burn their house down during heavy downpour and deciding to take shelter in a tree stump instead (with an infant, mind you!) while they could have at least used the gasoline to warm themselves later on.

Nevertheless, the movie does score high on performances and this is probably why one wouldn't want to write off the film altogether. I just wish the movie probed more into the actualities of survival than staging emotional scenes.

Verdict: Writing department needed to do a lot better!

One of the best

Like the title says, this is one of the best post apocalyptic movies I have seen. It was so realistically portrayed. I felt the emotions, and felt like I was living through it with the two sisters. There was such an amazing connection between the lead actresses, and their dynamic relationship through the movie was incredibly authentic and fascinating. I would agree with some of the negative reviews that some of the choices the sisters made during the movie probably weren't the best, but I think that gives the movie some of its reality. The end, well, this is where it goes a bit wrong for me. The logic explained in the movie is a bit off putting, and I do see it as a waste. I don't want to spoil what happens so that is all I will say about it.

All in all, still an 8 out of 10 for me, and I would highly recommend it if you are looking for a good story about the human will through adversity.
