District 9

Science Fiction from South Africa? Former CG animator Neill Blomkamp looks to bring us an interesting film with his South African homeland as a backdrop, hinting at some sort of alien internment with ominous social overtones. The trailer, in dead-serious documentary style, is a great set-up that whets the intellectual appetite with nary an explosion or transforming robot.

Excited about this SF feature with social commentary overtones. Like you said "Engage with the science, entertain with the fiction."

Very glad that Peter Jackson believed in Blomkamp enough to let him develop that short film into a full blown feature.
