The Tomorrow Man


John Lithgow is a small-town guy preparing for the apocalypse when he falls in love with a shopaholic (Blythe Danner) in Noble Jones's feature debut.... More

"Retiree Ed Hemsler (Lithgow) spends his quiet days watching the news, checking internet forums, and preparing for the end of the world. As a self-proclaimed “prepper,” Ed is constantly making arrangements for the future, often at the expense of things in the here and now — such as his waning health and his strained relationship with his adult son. But then he spots Ronnie Meisner (Danner) and knows there is something different about her. The two form an unlikely bond and are happy together despite their combined emotional baggage — until, one day, it all spills out before them." (Sundance Film Festival)Hide
