CHILDREN OF MEN

Director: Alfonso Cuarón

2006, USA/UK, 110 mins


Alfonso Cuarón’s depiction of London in 2027 is loosely based on P.D. James’ 1992 novel of the same name. In a society broken down as a result of mass infertility, the authorities have to deal with thousands of displaced people. Although commencing with a bleak view of the future, the film focuses on the themes of hope, redemption and faith. Stunning set pieces combine with great performances from, amongst others, Clive Owen, Michael Caine and Julianne Moore. With references to history, literature, current affairs and art, this new Comparative Study title will provide for plenty of classroom discussion.
