About Elysium

In the year 2154, two classes of people exist: the very wealthy, who
live on a pristine man-made space station called Elysium, and the rest,
who live on an overpopulated, ruined planet. The people of Earth are
desperate to escape the crime and poverty that is now rampant throughout
the land. The only man with the chance to bring equality to these
worlds is Max (Matt Damon), an ordinary
guy in desperate need to get to Elysium. With his life hanging in the
balance, he reluctantly takes on a dangerous mission – one that pits him
against Elysium's Secretary Delacourt (Jodie Foster)
and her hard-line forces – but if he succeeds, he could save not only
his own life, but millions of people on Earth as well.  Written and
directed by Neill Blomkamp.  The QED International / Alphacore Studios / Kinberg Genre production is produced by Bill Block, Neill Blomkamp, and Simon Kinberg.
