'I Think We're Alone Now'

It's the end of the world as we know it, and a reclusive library worker (Peter Dinklage) feels fine – he's content to tidy up his bucolic, if empty small town and methodically bury the bodies left by some sort of world-crippling epidemic. Then a young woman (Elle Fanning) breezes into his postapocalyptic life and the new dynamic invites friction ... as well as a few other unforeseen elements. Filmmaker Reed Morano has already established herself as a first-rate dystopian storyteller – she directed some of the strongest episodes in The Handmaid's Tale's first season – and cinematographer (everything from indie films to Beyonce's Lemonade); her take on a classic two-hander scenario finds her pulling double duty and lending the proceedings the perfect moody, melancholy vibe.
