Children of Men
Alfonso Cuaron's Adaptation of P.D. James' Dystopian Sci-Fi Novel
Wed February 18
2009, 7:00 & 9:15

This dark and sometimes darkly funny twist on the sci-fi genre, set in Britain in 2027, finds civilization on the brink of extinction, as no children have been born in 18 years. Clive Owen plays the London office worker whose former lover's radical group kidnaps him and then offers him cash to smuggle a young woman named Kee (Claire-Hope Ashitey) to a safe haven outside the country, which has closed its borders. Directed by Alfonso Cuaron (Y Tu Mama Tambien, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban). Also stars Julianne Moore, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Michael Caine.
