• Fans of José Saramago's literature – not a perfect adaptation, but still cool
• Fans of Julianne Moore, Danny Glover, Gael García Bernal, and Alice Braga
• People who enjoy futuristic fables
• Fans of terrifying movies—not necessarily horrifying movies
• People who believe in the ultimate good of humanity
• People who want to support international, independent filmmaking or whom maybe are sick of the Hollywood spin on films—this film is a Japanese / Brazil / Canada co-production of a Portuguese Nobel-laureate's novel, directed by a Brazilian director, and starring mostly North American actors
• Fans of Brazilian director Fernando Meirelles

• Fans of Mark Ruffalo—not his best performance
• Fans of Sandra Oh—her part is miniscule
• People who are never happy with a movie based on a book
• Scotomaphobes and scatophobes
• People who don't like films about the possible decay of civilization
• People who think scary films must feature zombies, psycho killers in masks, radioactive humanoids in the hills, mechanical torture devices, or chainsaws
• People offended by nudity in film
