Emilia Clarke’s The Pod Generation is a clever sci-fi satire about the future of pregnancy

While sci-fi fans like me wait for the highly anticipated sixth season of Black mirror to be released, one movie on the 2023 Sundance Film Festival lineup, The Pod Generation, provided the “what if” kind of thing could have fitted with other episodes of the Netflix series. The movie stars Game of ThronesEmily Clarke living in a version of the future where there is an option to have a baby via a plastic (and very expensive) egg. My biggest takeaway from the whole thing is how likely it can feel.

The Pod Generation focuses on the fact that our phones control just about everything in our lives right now, so why not do that one day before giving birth? Writer/director Sophie Barthes’ film has a clever vision of what our future could look like as screen time creeps ever faster. But rather than being a terrifying horror movie, it’s an endearing and satirical approach to its subject matter, and takes audiences all the way through its concept.
