Law and Society in the New Millennium: Predictions from Film

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Film often seeks to anticipate what future societies will look like. Inherent in these cinematic predictions is a view as to how law will evolve in future generations. The status quo, however, is not irrelevant in this calculus. The evolution of law requires, by definition, synthesizing the path from Point A (the present) to Point B (the future). Three recent films – Children of Men, V for Vendetta, and Minority Report – paint stark and contrasting visions of life in the United States and Great Britain in the 21st century. Central to all three stories is the role of law as enforced by the state. This paper will examine the competing visions of law offered by these three films. Additionally, I will analyze what aspects of life in the present potentially serve as the seeds for growing into the types of societies predicted by this trio of movies.
