A dystopian thriller, Children of Men imagines a world where a plague of infertility has afflicted all wombs, where religious cultists self-flagellate in roadside huddles, where refugees from war-torn nations flee to a dangerously nativist Britain. (Our species' deepest fears end up looking uncannily like Guantánamo or Abu Ghraib.) Amidst all this chaos, a pregnant woman appears, and Clive Owen has to whisk her to freedom. It's terribly exciting. (See Movie Times for more info.)
