Adapted from the 1992 P. D. James novel, Children of Men is set in a dystopian Britain on the brink of bleak demise. The human race has been ravaged by a plague of sterility and the youngest person in the world has just died at the age of 18. As desperation sets in, a lone pregnant woman must be transported to safety to ensure the future of humanity. This science fiction political thriller, directed and co-written by Cuarón, is beloved for its stirring performances by Clive Owen, Julianne Moore, Michael Caine, and Chiwetel Ejiofor, as well as its distinctive filmmaking technique.
