Z for Zachariah 2015 Film


(0 reviews)
Z for Zachariah 2015 film is based on the book of the same title by Robert C. O’Brien. It is not the first time Z for Zachariah has been adapted, the BBC produced a TV film for it’s Play For Today series of book adaptations. For a comparison of the two film read our Z for Zachariah Film Comparison.

For anyone who has read the book, the trailer clearly reveals that there are some key differences from the book, meaning that the Z for Zachariah 2015 film is not just like the book.

The setting and major themes have remained unchanged, as do some of the events in the book.  For example in the trailer, Loomis shows Ann how to pump petrol manually.

The trailer also shows that Ann interrupts Loomis’ bath in the radioactive river to warn him of the danger, which is not what happened in the book. However that is not the biggest change. In the book there are only two people, yet there are three actors in the trailer, creating a love triangle situation.

The film premier at the Sundance Film Festival was met with reasonable reviews. The one criticism seemed to be it’s pace, although some saw this slow drip as a strength in the thriller genre.
