Z for Zachariah movie quotes tell the story of one woman and two men, the only survivors on earth, involved in a strange love triangle. The science fiction drama was directed by Craig Zobel using a screenplay Nissar Modi adapted from the book of the same name by Robert C. O'Brien. Z for Zachariah opened in theaters on August 28, 2015.

In Z for Zachariah, Ann Burden (Margot Robbie) lives in a valley that somehow remained unaffected by the mass extinction disaster that left the rest of the world devoid of humans and contaminated. She's lived there alone for over a year until one day when she comes upon scientist John Loomis (Chiwetel Ejiofor). The two begin a relationship knowing full well that the future of mankind is in their hands, er, reproductive parts.

But their happy lives are shaken when another man, Caleb (Chris Pine), shows up in the valley. John doesn't trust Caleb but does notice that Caleb and Ann seem to have romantic chemistry. With a responsibility to procreate and live happily ever after, this love triangle just became more complicated than any of them imagined.

Z for Zachariah opens in theaters already showing other great films such as No Escape, She's Funny That Way, We Are Your Friends, American Ultra, and Straight Outta Compton.
