important message, too much violence
It has the same important messages as the Hunger Games, but these stories all seem to be tied up in extreme violence, making it impossible to reach the next generation until the kids are old enough to watch them. Yet, more frightening to me as an adult, was not the violence, but the thought that this is where our society is most likely heading. The 1% are the ones living on Elysium, both now and in the future. Probably the best thing you could get out of this movie, if you watch it with teenagers (NOT anyone below the age of 15!) is to discuss whether this type of future is inevitable for our society, or if we can somehow find another way to coexist, no matter what our financial status.
