Children of Men
I would call Children of Men a futuristic drama. The story is set in 2027 London, and the world has plunged into chaos. Women have been infertile for almost 18 years and the future is grim. An activist group approaches a man to escort a pregnant woman through the maze of violence, to a hopeful future. Clive Owen is the backbone of the film and does an amazing job. The film is realistic, creatively shot and at times, funny. Through all the violence, ironies of the human condition provide light moments. A refreshing, creative film that has so much action, heart and appeal.
