Elysium takes place in the year 2159 A.D, where two classes of people exist: the extremely affluent, who live on a pristine man-made space station called Elysium, and the rest, who live on an overpopulated Earth ruined by poverty, war and crime. Secretary Delacourt (Jodie Foster) will stop at nothing to preserve the luxurious lifestyle of the citizens of Elysium – but that doesn’t stop the people of Earth from trying to get in by any means they can. Max (Matt Damon) agrees to take on a life-threatening mission, one that could bring equality to these polarized worlds.
