District 9


Director: Neill Blomkamp

Stars: Sharlto Copley, David James, Jason Cope

Plot: In 1982, a massive star ship bearing a bedraggled alien population, nicknamed "The Prawns," appeared over Johannesburg, South Africa. Twenty-eight years later, the initial welcome by the human population has faded. The refugee camp where the aliens were located has deteriorated into a militarized ghetto called District 9, where they are confined and exploited in squalor. They find a kindred spirit in a government agent who is exposed to their biotechnology.
