By now most Netflix users have watched, or at least are aware of the sensational new film Bird Box, starring Sandra Bullock, or “that lady from Bird Box” (shame on you). While the film does a decent job tying up most of its loose ends, there is one burning question that went unanswered. Where in the fuck did Felix and Lucy take the car?!
Bird Box follows Sandra Bullock’s Malorie as she deals with parenting during a river rapids expedition. This isn’t just any rapids trip though, as she and her two kids take on the river while also participating in the Bird Box Challenge! This challenge requires them to do the entire thing blindfolded! All right, obviously that isn’t the true premise of the movie, but if I got at least one person to believe that shit, my day is made.
Bird Box sees Malorie trying to survive some apocalyptic happening with a group of people holed up in a house while they try to figure out what is causing people to commit suicide. During her stay, two of these survivors, Felix and Lucy (Machine Gun Kelly and Rosa Salazar) screw everyone over by taking the only reliable vehicle the group has and riding off into the sunset. Also, who the fuck thought it was a good idea to put Machine Gun Kelly in a Netflix movie?? Honestly, I think Netflix just did it because they can get away with that shit.
Anyway, People Magazine had the pleasure of interviewing the director, Susanne Bier, and naturally had to ask just where the hell the couple ran off to?! Her answer probably isn’t what most want to hear.
“I think [the grocery store] was their plan, but we don’t know! I think that that’s where they wanna go, but I actually think it’s quite exciting that we don’t know exactly where they went,” she revealed.
No Susanne. It isn’t exciting. We need concrete answers. If we wanted to make up our own conclusions we’d watch Netflix’s Bandersnatch.
For those that watched the film, and have half a brain, the grocery store is the most logical assumption. When Lucy went with part of the group earlier in the film, it was clear she was thinking that was the perfect place to wait out the end days. So while I’m sure most of you clicked this article expecting a better answer, sadly there is none. Thanks, Susanne.
Bird Box is currently available to stream on Netflix.
