The Playlist - Katie Walsh
The strength of Goodbye World is that it understands the foibles of these characters and lets them be as flawed as they are while they are also trying to survive not just the apocalypse but each other.

Slant Magazine - David Lee Dallas
The tetchy band of thirtysomethings' interpersonal problems are infinitely less compelling than the mysterious and original global disaster the filmmakers have devised.

Movie Nation - Roger Moore
Film buffs will see Goodbye World as a sort of “Trigger Effect” meets “Return of the Secaucus Seven” - growing up, learning to look at the world through more jaded adult eyes as the world ends.

Portland Oregonian - Marc Mohan
Goodbye World will remind you more of "Gilligan's Island" than "Lost."

Goodbye World (2013)


James and Lily live off the grid, raising their young daughter in a cocoon of comfort and sustainability. When a mysterious mass text ripples its way across the country, triggering a crippling, apocalyptic cyber attack, their home transitions from sheltered modern oasis to a fortress for the estranged old friends that show up at their door for protection and community. The unexpected reunion--abundant with revelry and remembrances, generously enhanced by organic wine and weed--is quickly undermined by the slights of the past, the spark of lingering flirtations and the threat of a locally grown new world order. Balancing tense confrontations with slivers of levity, director Denis Henry Hennelly pinpoints a future where ideology explodes into action in every area.
