A, B, C

Z For Zachariah, which opened this weekend, has quite a cast: Chiwetel Ejiofor, Margot Robbie and Chris Pine.  The thing is, that's it.  There's no one else in the movie unless you count the dog.

It's one of those end-of-the-world stories, where these three may be the only people left on Earth. (And from what I understand, the original novel has only two character, so I guess we should be happy to get three. But then, Hollywood has always loved triangles.)

But here's the thing. In the credits, under "Casting By," there are three names listed--Kerry Barden, Allison Estrin and Paul Schnee.  Are you telling me it took three people to cast this film? There are only three actors, and they're all relatively well-known.  Was one person assigned to find the best actor for each role?

Seems to me the director could have cast this film sitting at home in a chair with his eyes closed.

What an awful photo of Margot Robbie. She looks fat and her shoulders are bigger than the men's. You couldn't tell from this she's one of the most beautiful actresses around today.
