If you've seen the film, what did you think of the clone society?
Personally, I think it symbolises organised religion. It seems a well ordered society on the surface but dig a little deeper and you find the sinister agenda of those in charge. Other parallels include the strong discouragement of questioning and the promise of "reward" in the form of the lottery.
It was sometime ago I saw that movie, but I certainly see the parallels.

Answered at 2:49 PM on May. 13, 2009 by: Anonymous I think you have to have a pretty dark view of the world to think all religions out there have some "sinister agenda." I think most genuinely believe what they preach.
Organized religion is not the same as religions, it is the power structure that is suspect.

Notpanicking: It stars Ewen McGregor. It is a really good film and tackles the moral and ethical issues of cloning and it has lots of good action;)

mogencreative: You made some good points. I had forgotten about Animal Farm. It has been years since I read it.
