Details

Compelling distopian sci-fi from Oscar winner  Alfonso Cuaron (Gravity, Y Tu Mamá También)

In 2027, following eighteen years of global human infertility, the world is a bleak and hostile place. Former activist Theo (Clive Owen, Gosford Park, Shadow Dancer) drifts through the violent streets of London without hope or purpose.

However, when he reluctantly agrees to help former lover Julian (Julianne Moore, The Fugitive, The Hours) smuggle a miraculously pregnant woman out of the country, he is unwittingly thrust into the role of intervening between the human race and its extinction. As the country descends into chaos and the authorities close in, Theo must race against time to secure safe passage for  humanity's only hope of salvation.

Based on the dystopian novel by P.D. James and co-starring Michael Caine and Clare-Hope Ashitey (Seven Seconds), Children of Men offers a powerful and frightening glimpse at a future Britain which feels unnervingly prescient.
