Kate Dibiasky, an astronomy grad student played by Jennifer Lawrence, and her professor Dr. Randall Mindy, played by Leonardo DiCaprio, make an astounding discovery of a comet orbiting within the solar system. The problem – it’s on a direct collision course with Earth. The other problem? No one really seems to care. Turns out warning mankind about a planet-killer the size of Mount Everest is an inconvenient fact to navigate. Kate and Randall embark on a media tour that takes them from the office of an indifferent President Orlean and her sycophantic son and Chief of Staff, Jason to the airwaves of an upbeat morning show. The central question of this film is more relevant than ever: can the United States of America ever be aligned?

As in his previous films THE BIG SHORT and VICE, respectively about the financial crisis and the notorious American vice president Dick Cheney, director Adam McKay manages to capture a highly urgent theme in a juicy comedy with unforgettable over-the-top characters. As always, he taps into a cast of the greatest living American actors. Including Leonardo DiCaprio, whose role as a climate whistle-blower largely overlaps with his environmental activism in the real world.

Adam McKay, USA, 2021, 145 min. English spoken, Dutch subtitles. With Leonardo DiCaprio, Jennifer Lawrence, Timothée Chalamet, Melanie Lynskey, Cate Blanchett, Meryl Streep.
