Children of Men envisages a world one generation from now that has fallen into anarchy on the heels of an infertility defect in the population. The world's youngest citizen has just died at 18, and humankind is facing the likelihood of its own extinction. Set against a backdrop of London torn apart by violence and warring nationalistic sects, Children of Men follows an unlikely champion of Earth's survival: Theo (Academy Award-nominee Clive Owen), a disillusioned ex-activist turned bureaucrat, who is forced to face his own demons and protect the planet's last remaining hope for a future generation. Also starring Academy Award-nominee Julianne Moore and Academy Award-winner Michael Caine and directed by the accomplished Alfonso Cuaron, Children of Men is a stunning and meticulously realized masterwork that is as suspenseful and thrilling as it is thought-provoking.
