Just saw the movie "Children of Men" and here's my 2c - warning - may contain spoilers.
This was a typical piece of British socialist propaganda which portrays the UK of the future (and the rest of the World presumably) as being an ultra
right wing fascist state, having gone in that direction because of a Worldwide infertility pandemic.
The big theme was the forced deportation of illegal immigrants, and their ultimate rebellion in the prison town of Bexhill (read Warsaw Uprising).
As usual in UK films, the army were the bad guys, along with some terrorists who gathered at a remote farmhouse with the supportof the resident
farmer(British socialists hate country folk), and the saviors were long haired hippies (Michael Cain) who grew weed, used solar energy, made vegetable
stir fry and cracked "fart" jokes while under threat of execution. The "terrorists" were all UK nationals, while the Muslims were portrayed as
honorable freedom fighters chanting "Allah u akbar" as they valiantly fought for their lives in the Bexhill slum.
The pregnant heroine was of course a black illegal immigrant.
This piece of garbage followed on nicely from the similar (but enjoyable) V for Vendetta which is all hugely ironic, as the UK is now a full member of
the Eurotrash Socialist Crackpot club, and yet is still so nervous about the prospect of the Conservatives getting back into office that they feel it
necessary to churn out movies like "Children".
Incredibly they didn't find some way of blaming it all on the USA - the only genuinely shocking thing about the whole sad saga.
