When John Oldman retires after 10 years as a college history professor, his colleagues show up at his house to say goodbye as he packs up his belongings.

"Sometimes, we wish we could live forever. The Man from Earth is an example of why we probably shouldn't. A science fiction film where all that happens is talk. This movie should come with a disclaimer: WARNING: may contain intellectual material, do not watch if your brain is only built for watching things like guns, explosions and gratuitous sex, and can't handle things like in-depth conversations, thought provoking ideas an' stuff. In other words, in a world bloated with escapist fare a"
