Del is alone in the world. After the human race is wiped out, he lives in his small, empty town, content in his solitude and the utopia he’s methodically created for himself — until he is discovered by Grace, an interloper whose history and motives are obscure. And to make matters worse, she wants to stay…
“Though most of the drama comes from the personality clash of Del and Grace, there is, eventually, more of a science fiction twist to the story […] I Think We’re Alone Now is mostly a stylistic exercise that happens to have two great actors in the middle of it. Too bad it doesn’t know what to do with them.” David Bax, Battleship Pretension
“Unfortunately, a troublesome plot twist in the third act finds Morano and screenwriter Mike Makowsky losing their narrative footing. While this twist bolsters the film’s themes about constructing worlds to accommodate our own insecurities, it also squanders the emotional currency between Del and Grace.” J.R. Kinnard, Pop Matters
” …basically a two-hander, led by Peter Dinklage and Elle Fanning as two people looking for comfort in a world that’s gone to shit. Twists and turns abound, and while the screenplay by Mike Makowsky loses control ultimately, Morano’s subtle direction and the performances by her stars are the film’s highlight.” Punch Drunk Critics
“Once I Think We’re Alone Now establishes that Grace and Del represent love versus stability, the film doesn’t have a convincing way to reconcile the two. An adorable violin-accompanied montage doesn’t sell us on their partnership. A scene where they cruise blasting metal as Fanning head-bangs in slo-mo just seems like a beautifully photographed migraine.” Amy Nicholson, Variety
