The apocalypse doesn’t appear to be the end of the world to Del (Peter Dinklage), a reclusive survivor who seems to be coping with the extinction of the human race just fine. In fact, he might even be enjoying his newfound solitude. Or at least he was, until a mysterious young interloper named Grace (Elle Fanning) disturbs his calm, quiet, empty existence. And she won’t leave him alone. The film earned director Reed Morano (The Handmaid’s Tale) the U.S. Dramatic Special Jury Award for Excellence in Filmmaking at the 2018 Sundance Film Festival.

The filmmakers’ handling of the surprises has a narrative deftness and visual cleverness that is legitimately unbalancing. It also adds a blast of dark comedy to the proceedings.
Dramatically and philosophically void and unprovocative on the grand scale of apocalyptic speculative fiction, this low-budget indie is somber and dreary on a moment-to-moment basis and leaves its talented cast stranded with few opportunities to alleviate the sense of stasis.
I Think We’re Alone Now is a tone poem of a movie, telling its story with lush, vivid imagery, and quiet, nuanced performances. Its slow, methodical pacing may not appeal to all moviegoers, and the film’s final act doesn’t entirely work. But it’s nevertheless a beautiful meditation on loneliness and the walls we put up to deal with grief and loss.
