Children of Men Synopsis


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 disillusioned bureaucrat Theo (Owen) as he becomes an unlikely champion of Earth's survival. When the planet's last remaining hope is threatened, this reluctant activist is forced to face his own demons and protect her from certain peril.


I'm a little tired of watching Julianne Moore play an overwrought mother. The good news is that while Children of Men is yet another movie from her focused on protecting a kid, there's not much chance of the kid being hers.

The premise is a smart science fiction concept, and smart isn't something we've seen a lot of from Hollywood lately. Though the idea of mankind running out of kids is a little farfetched, exploring it is bound to spark discussion about the way we handle things in our own modern world. I can already sense the Pro Life/Pro Choice crowd lining up in the wings.

The question here is whether or not Cuaron can execute it. Wait a minute, this is Cuaron. There is no question. He's proven himself as a brilliant director, sit back and enjoy the ride. Children of Men is a can't miss movie.
