On this episode we look at lives suspended by the loss of youth in LITTLE CHILDREN and CHILDREN OF MEN. In the former, Kate Winslet and Patrick Wilson play a married couple whose affair recaptures a passion in their lives that they no longer feel with their own families, and in the latter families aren’t being made anymore as Clive Owen becomes responsible for the care of a woman who has given birth to the first child in almost two decades. But first we discuss documentary that is not an easy watch, but is ultimately very rewarding in new release PERVERT PARK.
