Children of Men

Tonight Amy and I watched the movie Children of Men, an excellent movie. It’s a British film, set in the future, where for unknown reasons, people have become sterile, and no more babies are being born. The last person was born 20-something years ago, he’s basically a celebrity because of that, and the movie starts out with him dying. The whole world has become chaotic, with London being the last refuge of order, so all these people are trying to illegally sneak in. The main plot involves this woman who is surprisingly 8 or 9 months pregnant, and they are trying to smuggle her into London. The human race is facing its own extinction and she may be their last hope for survival since nobody else can produce babies. It’s an interesting concept, and I think they filmed the movie in a very interesting way.
