A father has a recurring dream of losing his family. His nightmare turns into reality when the planet is invaded by a force bent on destruction. Fighting for their lives, he comes to realize an unknown strength to keep them safe from harm.
In a world where families are limited to one child due to overpopulation, a set of identical septuplets must avoid being put to a long sleep by the government and dangerous infighting while investigating the disappearance of one of their own.
For anyone who has seen Gattaca, you will probably know what to expect from Anon - an original take on the future, but one that is also grounded in topical issues, in this instance issues around data privacy.
Has many similar themes and echoes of Minority reports, although the direction is quite considered. This really helps to build the sense of a dystopian world that is reminiscent of Orwell's 1984, but as a result it doesn't have the pace of Spielberg's movie.
Not Niccol's best, but it's very watchable and has some really interesting ideas that will stay with you after the movie has finished
Ignore some of the other reviews on here. Ridiculous to judge a movie on the basis someone is smoking indoors.
