Attention romantic comedy and zombie film buffs: Here’s a treat for you.
This zombie romantic comedy (zom-rom-com, for short) film entitled “Warm Bodies” is written and directed by the young and promising Jonathan Levine, who brought us “All the Boys Love Mandy Lane” and “50/50.”
- Its plot is fresh, although the setting is familiar – almost lifeless America. At least zombies are not limited to grunting and attacking. They are trying to connect with humans. They have a heart.
- Attractive and deep, lead character “R,” portrayed by Nicholas Hoult, is reminiscent of protagonists like Edward Cullen (Twilight). He falls for Julie, played by Teresa Palmer, the human girlfriend of one teenage boy he attacks.
- The fun trailer is presented at the lead character’s point-of-view. Drives you curious whether the film would give justice to it.
- Finally, “Warm Bodies” is adapted from the novel written by Isaac Marion. Love the book? Then you might be interested to check out Levine’s treatment to it.
