Children of Men Review

I recently saw Children of Men with Ben and Jen. It was very good. Realistic treatment of characters, good dialog, good cinematography. Very sobering backdrop that enhanced the already emotional storyline.

Quick non-spoiler plot setup: It’s 2029 and all women on Earth have been infertile these past 20 years. But wait, what’s that? A pregnant lady! Drama ensues.

It was originally described to me as sci fi, but I wouldn’t classify it as such. It merely takes place in an alternate future.

This movie also renewed my desire to drink whiskey straight without making a “this is disgusting” face. The main character Theo had a flask he used liberally, and I was jealous.
