Costa Rica

THE END [El fin]

A Costa Rican companion to this summer's slew of apocalyptic comedies, Miguel Alejandro Gomez's film is a life-affirming bromance between downtrodden Nicolas and liberated Carlos. With a life-destroying asteroid locked into a collision course with Earth, Nicolas spends his last months shut up in his house, hiding from the world. But Carlos sees the imminent final days as a gift, an excuse to live life to the max. So he coaxes Nicolas out of bed and drags him on a wild road trip to Nosara, a memorable beach from their childhood.
