Ain't 100 % shure CHILDREN OF MEN qualifies fer sci-fi...maybe more like futuristic. Set in about 2050. This film could also be used fer the Worst Adaptation from a Book- based on the P.D. James book of the same title, but the film story ending is quite different--ah, Hollywood. Still, the atmospheric dread, the barbarism of hopelessness, the acting/casting all work together to offer a very sobering cautionary tale. Anyhoo--with one in five European men having fertility troubles, ain't shure the premise is fiction either, though the science of the problem is real enough.
It makes a good bookend for I Am Legend with Will Smith--another near future reality-fiction.
