I wasn't really sure where to post this, but has anyone seen the movie "Children of Men"? It's very violent and possibly triggering, but I really liked it.
It's about a lot of things - basically it's set about twenty years from now in a world that has become a distopia, both because of the escalation of sort of fucked up bs we're already perpetuating today (like anti-immigrant sentiments way out of control, soldier brutality against prisoners, etc.), and because of a massive infertility epidemic that, because noone has been born in over eighteen years, has left the world bereft of the presence of children (there's a line about halfway throught the movie that said something along the lines of "when the noises of children faded from the playgrounds people forgot how to live.")
It's really intense. There's definitely some stuff in it that I took issue with, but overall I thought it was really well done. Has anyone else seen it? Thoughts? Reactions?
