Content Note: stalking

Plot:
There’s an asteroid (Peter Grosz) heading towards Earth, because it is in love with Anna (Shannon Woodward), a woman. But its approach spells apocalypse for all of Earth.

Anna & the Asteroid has an interesting concept that could have been an excellent analogy for stalking – because that’s what the asteroid does. Instead it becomes a story about a woman sacrificing herself for the sake of the world (after a life-changing encounter with a human man that cures her of her nihilism). And that is questionable to say the least and ruined the film for me.
