"Children of Men" (2006)

Children of Men

Children of Men” is an intense film, set in England in 2027.  London has a late-seventies NYC graffiti grit and dirt to it, as above.  The government is cracking down on immigrants, and we soon learn that infertility has stopped human reproduction.  The film does not give you all the background of what’s going on, which gives the audience a bit of a challenge.  But the story moves right along, ratcheting up the adrenaline; as one reviewer put it, it’s ‘gut-clenching.’

Plenty of references to our situation today, just amped up a bit.  The ‘homeland security’ of this future is scary indeed.
