Elysium (7-Aug-2013)

Director: Neill Blomkamp

Writer: Neill Blomkamp

Keywords: Sci-Fi

In a dystopian future where a decimated Earth separates the poor from a luxurious spaceship-dwelling wealthy elite, one man carries out a mission that may propagate equality between the two realms.

In 2154, rampant wealth disparities, overpopulation, and pollution have combined to create a nightmare world in which the poor are forced to live on a dilapidated Earth whilst the wealthy elite enjoy the comforts of a luxury spaceship. Angered by his exposure to lethal amounts of radiation and the revelation that he will die in five days, factory worker and ex-convict Max DeCosta embarks on a suicide crusade for social justice on the ruined Earth, aiming to bring about a semblance of equality amongst classes.
