The trailer really hides a lot of what's going down in the world, if you'd like to know more (and spoil a little of the mystery for yourself) here's the full synopsis:

Green plays Susan, an epidemiologist recently out of a relationship gone sour; McGregor is Michael, the charismatic chef who sweeps Susan off her feet and shows her that not all guys are a-holes. Sounds swell, right? And it would be… except for one tiny problem: At the same time Susan and Michael are falling for each other, a global pandemic is threatening to change the face of humanity forever.

And Susan, in her job as an epidemiologist, is right at the center of it all. When a truck driver in Glasgow experiences a sudden inexplicable crying fit and subsequently loses his sense of smell, Susan learns that more than 100 other people across Europe have been stricken in similar fashion. As more and more people around the globe begin to suffer these strange symptoms that first attack their emotions and then their symptoms, Susan and Michael are forced to try and weather the storm and find out how the human race might cope with such a pandemic.


We're very excited about this particular movie, and we can't wait to see how this mysterious epidemic will change the love story of the main characters. Perfect Sense will premiere in Sundance.

Didn't I just see McGregor in a love story that took place at the end of the world? Oh no - wait... Just some people thought the world would end if American audiences saw this movie. My Bad.
