Y Tu Mamá También and Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban director Alfonso Cuarón returns to the helm to tell this futuristic tale in which society is without hope since humankind lost its ability to procreate. The year is 2027, and women can no longer give birth. The youngest inhabitant of the planet has just died at the age of 18, and all hope for humanity has been lost. As civilization descends into chaos, a dying world finds one last chance for survival in the form of a woman who has become inexplicably pregnant. Now, as warring nationalistic sects clash and British leaders try to maintain their totalitarian stronghold on the country, a disillusioned bureaucrat (Clive Owen) is brought back into the fold of activism by his guerrilla ex-wife (Julianne Moore). Reluctantly, he takes on the daunting task of escorting Kee (Claire-Hope Ashitey), the refugee who represents humankind's last hope for survival, out of harm's way and into the care of a mysterious organization known as The Human Project. Chiwetel Ejiofor, Charlie Hunnam, and Michael Caine co-star in this adaptation of author P.D. James's gripping 1992 novel.

Film director Alfonso Cuarón's dystopian science fiction thriller Children of Men is about a near future in which human fertility has nearly ceased, and to represent a setting that is familiar yet disturbing, the compilers of this various-artists soundtrack (there is also an album of the score) have chosen some rock and pop songs by well-known artists dating back to the '60s, some of them, however, presented in versions not so well known. Everybody knows the heavy metal band Deep Purple, but the band's initial American hit, a cover of Joe South's "Hush," doesn't sound much like its more successful "Smoke on the Water" phase. The Beatles' "Tomorrow Never Knows" and the Rolling Stones' "Ruby Tuesday" are iconic '60s songs, but they are here performed by Junior Parker and heavily accented Italian singer Franco Battiato, respectively. John Lennon's "Bring on the Lucie (Freeda Peeple)," a song featured on his 1973 album Mind Games, is not one of his more celebrated numbers, despite its anthemic appeal; the version heard here is a rehearsal take that first appeared on the Lennon Anthology box set in 1998. There are also rap and reggae toasting tracks, and some electronic music, adding to the sense of dislocation called for in the film.

Joy Division is one of the definitive bands from the rock culture. With their dark poetic inception and a sound marked by a new way of thinking about how music should be created, the Manchester band served as a model for countless artists. Today, just as it marks 35 years of the death of Ian Curtis (the legendary singer and lyricist of the group) The Many Faces Of Joy Division shows the hidden world behind the group, their rare recordings, side projects, their influences and the Manchester scene where the band bloomed. With a wonderful cover art, remastered sound and extensive liner notes, The Many Faces of Joy Division is an album not only for fans but for anyone who wants to understand the influence (and enjoy the music) of a truly transcendent bad, which made beauty out of sadness.

In 2027, no human children have been born in any part of the world for eighteen years. The world has descended into chaos with most governments in the world collapsing, leaving the United Kingdom as one of the sole organized societies. Millions of refugees have entered the United Kingdom seeking asylum. As a result of the influx, Britain has become a militarized police state. The British Army occupies the streets and forcefully detains all illegal immigrants and suspected sympathizers. Theo, an activist turned apathetic bureaucrat, learns that the world's youngest human, an eighteen-year-old, has been stabbed to death. Theo narrowly avoids a café bomb explosion, attributed to the Fishes—an underground resistance group advocating the rights of immigrants. Theo visits his friend, Jasper Palmer, a former editorial cartoonist and aging hippie. Jasper lives in a secluded hideaway in the countryside and spends his time growing cannabis and caring for his catatonic wife.

C'est le 16 novembre 2027, et l'on rapporte dans tous les médias à travers le monde le meurtre de celui que l'on appelait « bébé Diego ». Âgé de 18 ans, il était la plus jeune personne sur Terre et le dernier enfant né recensé. Theo Faron, un ancien activiste politique devenu employé de bureau, apparaît peu touché par cette nouvelle alors que le monde pleure le jeune homme. Il quitte un café à Londres juste avant qu'une bombe ne pulvérise l'établissement. Le gouvernement accuse les « Poissons » (Fishes), un groupe terroriste qui combat pour le droit des immigrés. Remué par l'explosion, Theo rend visite à son ami, Jasper Palmer, un ancien cartooniste politique, vivant à la campagne, et partageant son temps entre la culture du cannabis et l'assistance à sa femme catatonique, une ancienne photographe de guerre, torturée par le gouvernement.
