Storyline

James and Lily, estranged from society, live off the grid, raising their young daughter in a cocoon of comfort and sustainability. When a mysterious mass text ripples its way across the country, triggering a crippling, apocalyptic cyber attack, their home transitions from sheltered modern oasis to a fortress for the estranged old friends that show up at their door for protection and community. The unexpected reunion--abundant with revelry and remembrances, generously enhanced by organic wine and weed--is quickly undermined by the slights of the past, the spark of lingering flirtations and the threat of a locally grown new world order. Balancing tense confrontations with slivers of levity, director Denis Henry Hennelly pinpoints a future where ideology explodes into action in every area. Written by Anonymous

Quotes

Benji Henry: The system tells you three lies. It tells you that you're free. You're not. It tells you that you can change it from within. You can't. And if you try to change it from the outside, it tells the rest of the world you're a violent criminal.

Eclectic and Enjoyable Ride in the Face of Impending Doom.
21 October 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Where would I go if the world were ending? Up to Mendocino- and I'd try to wrestle my way in with this funky heard of survivors while it was all going down. Here we find the alchemist-director Hennelly brewing personal dramas with external forces of destruction along with enough wine and weed to feed all the souls tumult- and so the story of Goodbye, World unfolds beneath the redwoods, between the rolling hills of Northern California. I liked the pace of the film, a welcomed respite from the normal fast-paced, head-pounding jolt of traditional cinema today. Thank you for reminding us we don't have to sit on the edge of our proverbial seats like hamsters stuck in advertised placement wheel hell. Let a movie be a f-ing movie. Days are slow in the mountains; life takes time to grow from the ground up. Afternoon board games and laughter with friends in a hot tub is bliss. Personal histories unravel in a string of moments and these elements were captured in a true fashion. Character dev/ and tight dialogue in some cases would have enhanced certain scenes and while the umbrella of impending doom had eclectic, bright characters animating the space below to capture us, overall I think the film was misunderstood. Either way, I loved the film and it reminds me of a special place and time.
