In a time of starvation, a survivalist lives off a small plot of land hidden deep in forest. But when Kathryn and her daughter Milja wander into his life looking for food and shelter, his carefully ordered world is upset. As the three of them start co-existing, suspicion and dependence intertwine.

MUBI's take

An impressively conceived debut film from Ireland’s Stephen Fingleton, The Survivalist is intimate in scale but big and bold in its ambition: an unflinching examination of the end of humanity and civil society in the post-apocalypse. Led by another young talent—the fascinating rising star Mia Goth.
