This week, we sit down with the tense, powerful and prescient film: Children of Men. Listen with us as we try to step through our thoughts and feelings about a film that is not easy to watch but a powerful experience regardless. As always we don’t shy away from spoilers and lay it all out on the table.
For a more detailed episode description we talked about:
The concept we went with for the food for this film
How the imagery and references in the film felt a little heavy handed
Whether or not the acting roles of Clive Owen and Julianne Moore worked for us
Dreads on white people
The highs and lows of Children of Men, who liked it and who didn’t
The allusions to the story of Mary and Jesus
How impressive the film was in evoking tension
The seemingly constant presence of animals in the film
We close out on some snippets of forum threads from our deep-dive into mommy blogger culture.
