Gloria (Anne Hathaway) is an out-of-work girl who, after getting kicked out of her apartment by her boyfriend, is forced to leave her life in New York and move back to her hometown. When news reports surface that a giant creature is destroying Seoul, South Korea, Gloria gradually comes to the realization that she is somehow connected to this far-off phenomenon. As events begin to spin out of control, Gloria must determine why her seemingly insignificant existence has such a colossal effect on the fate of the world.
By watching the marketing campaign, you are lead to believe this film is more light-hearted and comical.
Upon watching, the true underlining meaning becomes more apparent and it touches on a more dark subject matter, that apparently was lost on some viewers. It is a very real world dynamic in the relationship between Gloria (Anne Hathaway) and Oscar (Jason Sudeikis) that was well executed in this manner of storytelling.
It very difficult to say why this film is worth watching without "Spoilers", but I enjoyed this film; even the second time around, watching it on Netflix just recently.
