In 2027, following 18 years of global human infertility, the world is a bleak and hostile place. Former activist Theo (Clive Owen) drifts through the violence-riven streets of London without hope or purpose. However, when he reluctantly agrees to help former lover Julian (Julianne Moore) smuggle a miraculously pregnant refugee out of the country, he is unwittingly thrust into the role of all that stands between the human race and its extinction. As the country descends into anarchy and the authorities close in, Theo must race against time to secure safe passage for the humanity’s only hope of salvation…

 Alfonso Cuarón // UK/USA 2006 // 15 // 109mins

“Classic dystopian British science fiction that draws powerful and moving parallels to the state of the world.”

“A movie that grabs you hard, pops your eyes, provokes your mind and ultimately lifts your spirits.”
Rolling Stone

“This explosively violent future-nightmare thriller has simply the most extraordinary look of any movie around.”

“Like nothing you’ve ever seen before, a milestone movie that takes action movie conventions and bends them right out of shape.”

“Mr. Cuarón’s speculative fiction is a gratifying sign that big studios are still occasionally in the business of making ambitious, intelligent work that speaks to adults.”
The New York Times

The film will be preceded by a talk from Steve Ballinger, Director of Communications at British Future – an independent thinktank and charity working on issues of integration, migration and identity – who will explore what the public really think about refugees and asylum.
