Co-produced by the UK’s Heyday Films, this apocalyptic sci-fi satire is otherwise quintessentially American in its dissection of consumerism, conspiracies and chemical explosions. Marriage Story director Noah Baumbach reunites with Adam Driver and his real-life partner Greta Gerwig for an ambitious amalgam of ideas and tones that is sly, slippery and sublime.
