Set in the year 2027, where the human race have become entirely infertile, ushering in a state of civil unrest, Children Of Men follows the story of Theo, as he becomes involved with a militant immigrant rights group headed by his ex-wife.
The film is a dark and gripping tale, exploring the lengths the human race will go too when faced with their own extinction. As Theo finds himself becoming more and more involved with the militant group, he uncovers a harrowing discovery in the form of Kee, a young girl staying with the group. Kee’s secret could be the key to solving the infertility epidemic, but it’s not just Theo who’s interested in her.
Kee and Theo set off on a life changing journey as they battle their way across war torn Britain to try and get Kee and her secret to safety.
The film is regarded as a huge technical achievement. Director Alfonso Cuaron, who would later go on to direct the spectacular ‘Gravity’, achieved amazing technical feats throughout the entirety of the film, least of all is a fourteen minute single shot that goes through an explosive war zone.
