Target Age: Teens
Buzz Factor: Matt Damon stars in this intense, futuristic sci-fi thriller from director Neill Blomkamp (District 9). The compelling story is set in the year 2154, when Earth is riddled with crime, hunger, and poverty while the extremely rich live in "Elysium," a secure space habitat in Earth's orbit, where everything is seemingly perfect. Teens who are into sci fi -- or who've studied utopian/dystopian societies -- will be mesmerized by the plot. —Common Sense Media
