On January 20, 2023, A24’s feature film, When You Finish Saving the World, aired in theaters worldwide. The emotional comedy stars Julianne Moore and Stranger Things star Finn Wolfhard as a mother and son struggling to connect.

Meanwhile, Julianne’s character, Evelyn, uses her free time to help a teen at her shelter while Ziggy (Finn) ignores her. Ziggy doesn’t mind, though, since his crush on a political science student and his online music career keeps him busy. As the movie continues, Evelyn and Ziggy realize they’re more similar than they thought and will always need each other.

Is ‘When You Finish Saving the World’ available to stream?

Unfortunately, When You Finish Saving the World isn’t available to stream. The movie’s Friday release was only for theaters, and it is currently the only way to watch it. However, most cinemas are playing the movie, so there shouldn’t be any trouble finding one in your area.

If going to the movies is off your radar When You Finish Saving the World will be available to rent on platforms like Apple, Amazon, Vudu, or YouTube. However, it won’t happen until after the movie has been in theaters.

When You Finish Saving the World also doesn’t have a streaming service home. However, if the film does stream somewhere (which most movies are these days), it won’t be available for at least 45 days after its premiere.

Finn Wolfhard said he didn’t have to look far to find the inspiration for his ‘When You Finish Saving the World’ character.

In When You Finish Saving the World, Finn's character characterizes how many people view the 20-year-old actor’s generation. The teenager’s antics and drive for social media fame are a significant part of the show’s plot, and Finn said he pulled from his online-obsessed peers when acting as Ziggy.

“You'd be surprised how many kids my age are like this and have this skewed idea of who they are because of how powerful social media can seem when you're on it, but then when you're in your real life, it actually doesn't really mean anything,” Finn explained to Paper Magazine.
