Story


Children of Men" envisages a world one generation from now that has fallen into anarchy on the heels of an infertility defect in the population. The world's youngest citizen has just died at 18, and humankind is facing the likelihood of its own extinction.

Set against a backdrop of London torn apart by violence and warring nationalistic sects, "Children of Men" follows disillusioned bureaucrat Theo (Owen) as he becomes an unlikely champion of Earth's survival. When the planet's last remaining hope is threatened, this reluctant activist is forced to face his own demons and protect her from certain peril.

Directed and co-written by acclaimed filmmaker Alfonso Cuarón ("Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban," "Y tu mamá también"), "Children of Men" also stars Julianne Moore as the leader of an underground opposition group and Michael Caine as Jasper.

The film is produced by Marc Abraham & Eric Newman ("Spy Game," "Dawn of the Dead"), Hilary Shor & Tony Smith ("Eye of the Beholder," "Beautopia") and Iain Smith ("Alexander," "Cold Mountain"). It is adapted for the screen by Cuarón, Timothy J. Sexton ("Live from Baghdad") and David Arata ("Brokedown Palace").
