Perfect Sense – Trailer
Premiering at Sundance this year is Perfect Sense, a David Mackenzie directed love story turned post-apocalyptic horror movie starring my favorite Brit, Ewan McGregor.
The movie’s synopsis does a better job of summing up the plot than I ever could hope.
Green plays Susan, an epidemiologist recently out of a relationship gone sour; McGregor is Michael, the charismatic chef who sweeps Susan off her feet and shows her that not all guys are a-holes. Sounds swell, right? And it would be… except for one tiny problem: At the same time Susan and Michael are falling for each other, a global pandemic is threatening to change the face of humanity forever.
And Susan, in her job as an epidemiologist, is right at the center of it all. When a truck driver in Glasgow experiences a sudden inexplicable crying fit and subsequently loses his sense of smell, Susan learns that more than 100 other people across Europe have been stricken in similar fashion. As more and more people around the globe begin to suffer these strange symptoms that first attack their emotions and then their symptoms, Susan and Michael are forced to try and weather the storm and find out how the human race might cope with such a pandemic.
Considering the last love story I saw that featured Mr. McGregor was A Life Less Ordiinary I know the guy has the skills to pull off the quirky type of story this promises to be.
