A trailer for the upcoming Eva Green movie which co-stars Eleventh Doctor Who Matt Smith has been posted online – Womb is an unusual film with challenging subject matter and a sombre tone.
Human cloning is the subject matter of the movie – a more detailed synopsis than we’ve seen previously has also been released:
When Rebecca returns to her grandfather’s house, she meets her childhood sweetheart Thomas again. Thomas leaves his girlfriend Rose and their love picks up where it left off, until Thomas dies in a car accident. Devastated, the young woman contemplates suicide until she finds consolation in the idea of cloning. Although society does not fully accept it yet, she plans to give birth to Thomas, bringing her lost love to life (again).
Living in Rebecca’s grandfather’s remote old house, Thomas grows up believing his father died in an accident. Rebecca never mentions cloning. In spite of their secret, Rebecca and Thomas lead an almost normal life until Rose finds out about them â€¦
It’s a fascinating and somewhat disturbing concept – but like the best science fiction puts the “what if?” question to the audience. Human cloning technology is potentially with us now, and at worst 10-15 years away…
