Based on the classic novel by H.G. Wells, THINGS TO COME tells the story of a great war that lasts decades, culminating in plague spread through biological warfare, grinding Europe down until it has returned to the Middle Ages.
In one town run by a tyrannical baron, a man shows up in a flying machine, which had been thought extinct. He tells the people that a new power is emerging–a utopian society run by scientists and guided by reason. This society triumphs against fear and superstition, but when it attempts to send people into space, fear and superstition raise their ugly head again.
A brilliant movie. Today, as then, human beings continue to face the same choices–division, fear, greed and superstition on the one hand, and reason, progress and enlightenment on the other.
