"I Think We're Alone Now" is a 2018 post-apocalyptic drama film directed by Reed Morano and starring Peter Dinklage, Elle Fanning, and Charlotte Gainsbourg in the lead roles. The movie is set in a world ravaged by a mysterious epidemic that kills most of the global population, leaving the survivors struggling to lead isolated lives. Peter Dinklage plays Del, a reclusive man living alone in his hometown, trying to cope with his loneliness after losing everyone he has ever loved. He spends his days going about his routine, burying the dead bodies that litter the streets, and salvaging anything useful to him from abandoned homes. One day, his solitary existence is interrupted by a young girl named Grace, played by Elle Fanning, who stumbles upon his home after searching for other survivors. Initially reluctant to let her stay, Del eventually agrees to let her stay with him after learning she lost her family too. As the two get to know each other, Del realizes that Grace is not what she seems and that there may be more people left alive than he initially thought. A mix of hope and fear set in as the two set out on a journey to find other survivors and potentially rebuild a new world. Throughout the movie, Del and Grace encounter several challenges such as scarcity of resources and the threat of the outside world. However, the real drama of the movie unfolds in the tension and complexities of their changing relationship. Del has to navigate between his desire for intimacy and his aversion to human contact, while Grace struggles with her desire for a sense of belonging and the fear of getting attached to anyone. Charlotte Gainsbourg plays a character named Violet, who comes into the picture later in the movie when Del and Grace finally come across the first signs of a community. She provides a stark contrast to Del's philosophy of survival, even with Grace's attachment to him questioning what life could be beyond the confines of his hometown. This contrast also provided a different perspective about humanity's continued existence and how one might cope with life after everything's become uncertain. The movie's overall tone is somber and contemplative, with its elegiac musical score and stunning visuals complementing the performances of its talented cast. It is a thought-provoking exploration of loneliness, human connection, and resilience in a post-apocalyptic world. "I Think We're Alone Now" is a movie that will leave a lasting impression on its audience. Despite its bleak premise, the film is surprisingly uplifting, with moments of tenderness and hope woven into its narrative. If you are a fan of thought-provoking, character-driven movies, this is one that is surely worth watching.
