048 Children of Men

00:00 / 54:05

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.
