Encapsulated. Would you recommend this? why?

I would recommend this because i think it marks the beginning of a new wave of films that show the dark side of the earth, a future where nothing is as bright as people imagine.

I came across this while I was taking GCSE English.

Recollection and revelations

For me it changed the way I thought about the future perhaps it's not going to be so bright.
