'Elysium' Is Latest Film To Tackle Income Inequality
“Elysium,” the new movie starring Matt Damon and Jodie Foster, depicts a world where Earth is a destitute planet, covered in slums and plagued by disease, home to only the poorest of souls.
The more fortunate get to live on a space station called Elysium, where the air is pure and medical problems can be zapped with the flip of a switch.
This isn’t the first time that income inequality has been tackled on the big screen.
