WHAT’S IT ABOUT?

In the future, a group of young men and women are bred aboard a multi-generational space shuttle towards a distant planet, in order to save humanity from extinction. Initially, they are designed to have intelligence and no emotional desires, but when some of them decide to forego their training and start to explore their inner desires, the fate of the ship plunges into chaos…

IN ONE SENTENCE, WHY SHOULD YOU BE EXCITED?

Writer-director Neil Burger reimagines Lord of the Flies as a space-set tale of power and corruption of youth, which is about as bizarre and oddly fascinating as it sounds.
