Children of Men

Children of Men ★★★ 2006 (R)

The future's never fun. It's 2027 and there's global infertility and worldwide chaos, which doesn't matter much to British bureaucratic drone Theo Faron (Owen), until he's pulled into an activist group headed by his ex, Julian (Moore). Seems she needs Faron to take illegal refugee Kee (Ashitay), who's pregnant with the first child conceived in 18 years, to safety. This involves a long, strange, and dangerous trip—and a stop at Theo's pothead friend Jasper's (a raucous Caine) cottage. Dark and dreary yet oddly fascinating. Loosely based on the 1993 novel by P.D. James. 108m/C DVD, HD DVD . US Clive Owen, Julianne Moore, Michael Caine, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Charlie Hunnam, Pam Ferris, Danny Huston, Peter Mullan, Clare-Hope Ashitey; D: Alfonso Cuaron; W: Alfonso Cuaron, Timothy J. Sexton; C: Emmanuel Lubezki. British Acad. '06: Cinematog.

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

Notes:
  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
