This is a movie for adults; a plausible near-future tale that need not predict anything to be deeply relevant to our times. Fear of immigrants, terrorism, militarized police and a growing surveillance state, the very rich isolating themselves from chaos they have helped create, Children of Men is a story of and for our times.
In a future where no more children will be born, how do we proceed through life when hope for the human race has been removed? Why continue living when you've lost everything? Why on earth would you quit smoking?
