Children of Men. (United Kingdom, 2006) 105' (27/01/2014)

This film by Alfonso Cuarón is set in a future where two decades of human infertility have left society on the brink of collapse. The United Kingdom is the only stable nation with functioning government, and it has been deluged by asylum seekers from around the world. In response, the British government decide to detain immigrants. In this scenario, Julian Taylor (Julianne Moore) asks his ex-husband, Theo Faron (Clive Owen), to help Kee (Clare-Hope Ashitey), a refugee woman who is pregnant.

It was nominated for three BAFTA Awards, winning Best Cinematography and Best Production Design.
"Watching Children of Men, which creates a London in ruins, I realized after a point that the sets and art design were so well done that I look it as a real place. Often I fear it will all come to this, that the rule of law and the rights of men will be destroyed by sectarian mischief and nationalistic recklessness. Are we living in the last good times?" Rogert Ebert. Chicago Sun-Times. 05/10/2007.
