In 2027, every woman on earth is infertile. With the loss of their ability to have children, the world has also lost hope. Clive Owen (Closer) plays Theo, a Briton attempting to make a life in this hellish world. His estranged wife (Julianne Moore) convinces him to help transport a young woman to safety. When Theo learns that the woman is pregnant, their journey takes on a significance--and a danger--he never imagined. Directed by Alfonso Cuaron (Y Tu Mama Tambien) and also starring Michael Caine and Chiwetel Ejiofor. []

This explosively violent future-nightmare thriller, directed by Alfonso Cuaron and adapted from the novel by PD James, has simply the most extraordinary look of any movie around.
