9/Tenths, a movie that's been making the film festival rounds for the past year, is about what happens when two rich Southern Californians flee a global war meltdown to their hidden country home and find that a working-class Mexican is squatting there. At first, they manage to co-exist peacefully, but as civilization continues to deteriorate the men go the to 28 Days Later place and start fighting over which of them "owns" the woman. I'm looking forward to catching this flick, written by relative unknown Michele McGuire, when it goes into wider release because it deals with two of my favorite topics: the bourgeoisie brought low by a radical change in global politics, and the way gender roles are affected by a return to pre-techological society.
