Something for the Weekend?

I understand the film Children of Men is based on the PD James novel and explores a utopian future, where the world is completely devoid of fertility and therefore children.

As I understand it, it’s a light-hearted, life-affirming romp, where Clive Owen and Julianne Moore enjoy activities like being able to do a supermarket shop without driving their trolleys into misbehaving rug rats throwing tantrums in the aisles (having also been able to park their car in the now defunct parent and toddler spaces), enjoy meals out in nice restaurants free from screaming babies and find pleasure in recreational sex free from contraceptive concerns.

Or something.

To be honest I didn't read the full review, but I think that was basically the gist of it...
