When a mysterious colleague appears outside of work, it begins an unforgettable journey for the employees. They soon find themselves with two lives and very few memories between them; but when they reunite at home after weeks apart.
What is the plot of the story?
The employees of a large company are allowed to start over; however, something is wrong with them. They soon realize that their new lives are not as perfect as they thought. How do the employees get themselves into this situation? It begins when one employee finds out about another employee’s secret life outside work. This leads all other employees to want to know more about their co-workers, and the secrets they may be hiding. Once the employees are given their severance packages, they take advantage of their freedom and leave work for the last time. What awaits them outside is a mystery that only unfolds as they venture further away from their old lives.
Who is in the cast?
The cast features a diverse ensemble of characters including Adam Scott, Britt Lower, Zach Woods, Bruce Greenwood, and Craig Robinson.
What role did each character portray?
Each character in the cast brought their energy to the screen. Adam Scott played an older brother who recently lost his job; Britt Lower and Zach Woods starred as two sisters whose lives have been turned upside down by recent events; Bruce Greenwood portrayed a father trying to connect with his adult son; Craig Robinson played an overbearing boss who is constantly pushy with his employees, and Craig Robinson also played an older sister trying to deal with her father’s death while raising children on her own.
What is the climax like?
The climax was one of the most memorable moments in this film because it involved a fight scene between two brothers, which led to an emotional ending where they both fell into each other’s arms. What made these scenes so powerful were all their performances and how well they worked together as actors. The best part about watching severance was seeing Craig Robinson and Danny McBride in different roles and how they managed to keep the same level of humour and intensity throughout the entire film.

What ratings did it receive?
Severance received an R rating from the Motion Picture Association of America for strong violence and some language. However, it was rated 18 by the British Board of Film Classification due to scenes involving graphic violence and gore that may cause distress among younger viewers.
Watched an episode of Severance. The analog world view and the look is amazing! The separation of work and personal life in "Severance" is also new! Great drama! In my case, I'm creating things all the time, even in my personal life. pic.twitter.com/Vc9MM69cwB

Who is the antagonist?
The antagonist is the band of mercenaries. However, they are not a part of the plot until later in the story. In addition to that, there were two other antagonists: one being an assassin hired by Mr Atherton’s wife and another was an evil spirit called “Severance” who wanted revenge on his family for his father’s death.
Would you recommend this to watch?
If you are not easily disturbed by violence and gore, then I would recommend watching it. It is a very good movie with great acting and plot. However, if that kind of scene bother you or make you feel uncomfortable, then I would not recommend it. This movie is not for children. It contains strong language and graphic violence that isn’t suitable for kids.
