100 Years of Dystopia Series Episode 9

Adventures In Babysitting

Clive Owen (Bourne Identity) experiences some pretty intense labor pains while smuggling the world’s last pregnant woman across war-torn England in the 2006 dystopian thriller Children of Men. Will this new bundle of joy convince the masses that decades of unexplained infertility are over, and they can stop being savages and restore civilization? Or would it be safer to entrust the kid’s care to storks rather than a drunk, his terrorist ex-wife Julianne Moore, and his pot farmer bestie Michael Caine?  Time is running out for you to Donate for Gold and Listen Now!
