Children of Men

I saw Children of Men today. Wow, this movie was so deep, so wide … It’s something everyone should see, even if this isn’t usually your kind of film. And I know it will probably be ignored. Sadly.

There were a couple scenes that took my breath away. The one that I think was intended to was the one where they stop fighting to allow her to bring the baby outside. You get that it’s the take-your-breath-away-making-a-point scene but it was so well done. I really was holding my breath there. A wonderful poignant moment, full of the hope of the human species and then … bang! right back to annhilation. Wonderful moviemaking.

    So do you think Kate is worthy of the Oscar nom?

    Ahh, my lass, you’re thinking of “Little Children” with Kate Winslet. “Children of Men” is with Clive Owens. 🙂
