Children Of Men

Director: Alfonso Cuarón

U.S.A/U.K., Adventure/Drama/Sci-Fi, 2006, 110 Minutes

Take a trip into the future with Alfonso Cuarón’s depiction of London in 2070, which is loosely based on P.D. James’ 1992 novel of the same name. Society as we know it has broken down as a result of mass infertility. How authorities deal with displaced people poses uncomfortable questions about immigration. Although commencing with a bleak view of the future, the fi lm focuses on the themes of hope, redemption and faith. Stunning set pieces combine with great performances from, among others, Clive Owen, Michael Caine and Julianne Moore. With references to history, literature, current aff airs and art, this new Leaving Cert Comparative Study will provide for plenty of classroom discussion.
