Children of Men envisages a world one generation from now that has fallen into anarchy on the heels of an infertility defect in the population. The world’s youngest citizen has just died at 18, and humankind is facing the likelihood of its own extinction. Set against a backdrop of London torn apart by violence and warring nationalistic sects, Children of Men follows disillusioned bureaucrat Theo (Owen) as he becomes an unlikely champion of Earth’s survival. When the planet’s last remaining hope is threatened, this reluctant activist is forced to face his own demons and protect her from certain peril.
Directed by Spike Lee, Inside Man stars Denzel Washington as New York police detective, Keith Frazier, a tough, street-smart cop fighting for a promotion while trying to live down accusations of misconduct connected to his last case. When he and his partner, Bill Mitchell (Chiwetel Ejiofor) are despatched to the scene of an in-progress bank robbery and hostage crisis, Miller must face off against a well-educated criminal, Dalton Russell (Clive Owen), masterminding a concisely plotted operation. As negotiations grow more strained, a power broker with mysterious ties and a hidden agenda (Jodie Foster) becomes involved in the crisis, injecting even more instability into an already volatile situation. Miller slowly begins to realise that in this ultimate game of cat-and-mouse, rules are arbitrary, all roles are up for grabs and the black-and-white of right and wrong has blurred to a shadowy landscape of grey.
