Presenting a bleak, harrowing, and yet ultimately hopeful vision of mankind's future, “Children of Men” is a riveting story tale of potential things to come. The movie “Children of Men” by Alfonso Cuarón, is set in 2027 England, and the human race has grown infertile, which leaves governments all around the world in chaos. The movie is based on the 1993 novel by British mystery writer P.D. James.
The story begins with Theo (Clive Owen), a white-collar drone in 2027 London. The film quickly establishes that no children have been born in more than 18 years, that the rest of the world is worse off than Britain and that the government's anti-immigration stance has the country on the edge of civil war. Theo was an activist once but has little time for anything except his pain -- until he gets pulled into an attempt to usher young woman named Kee, only pregnant woman and soon he embarks a countrywide chase in which the goal is nothing less than the survival of the human race.
It's best to know as little as possible about this movie before watching it.The story is so fast-paced that you won't be thinking about this plot or any other.
