Film Synopsis

In a dystopian future where women have lost the ability to conceive children, apathetic government bureaucrat Theo becomes entrusted with the task of protecting a woman who has the potential to save all of mankind.

In this episode, the guys talk about a bunch of themes such as the the power of the future, gender roles, immigration, order, totalitarianism, animals, religion, art, and hope. Mark complains about the patriarchy and Mike makes an argument for authoritarianism. Tune in to see why.

Did you know that Children of Men is based on a book by the same name by author P. D. James? You can get it for yourself here: Amazon, iTunes.
