How It Ends

Spotlight Narrative

New York Premiere

FEATURE | United States | 83 MINUTES



It’s the end of the world as we know it, and Liza feels…fine? A loner by nature, she’s single and resigned to receive the impending end of the universe alone and at peace. But something, nay someone, is pushing her to make amends with friends, family, and lovers before joining her pal’s bacchanalian blowout and going out, forever, with a bang. And so begins Liza’s journey through the manicured streets of suburban Los Angeles, traveling by foot to find peace with her life and, along the way, converse with a panoply of eccentric strangers trying to grapple with their final hours left on Earth. Her companion in said end of the world pilgrimage? The person who knows her better than anyone.

Featuring a who’s who of comedic favorites, including Fred Armisen, Olivia Wilde, Nick Kroll, and Lamorne Morris, and shot completely during the quarantine of 2020, How It Ends is Tribeca alum Daryl Wein and Zoë Lister-Jones’ hilarious and poignantly resonant comedy for our collective ages. —Liza Domnitz
