Warning on how population control can get out of hand
8 April 1999 | by dnelsSee all my reviews

The Last Child is an excellent movie which was classified as science Fiction and shows how irrational demand for the control of population can get out of hand and how one couple was willing and able to defy an unjust law so that the law could be changed
