    Just finished reading the book. We were just in New Zealand and stayed at the house where the movie was filmed. Great setting.

  2. Loren Piotrowski says:

    I have taught this book to my 7th graders for years. I hope I will be able to show them this movie. The plot is different from the book, so I’m hoping it’s good. :)

  3. Dana Cord says:

    Great book would be interested to know who has written the screenplay – cast fantastic and Zobel has good reputation, will be interesting to see his interpretation of this.

  4. I am glad that Z for Zachariah got some positive news. Good luck to the future and I hope that the film isn’t buried by so many action/ big name film.

    I saw a test screening of this in Pasadena last month. It’s slow and challenging, but very powerful by the end, and cast is absolutely fantastic.

  6. I can’t wait to see the movie Z for Zachariah when it finally hit the movie theater. I must remember to check the library and read Z for Zachariah the movie again. Good luck to the movie.
