★★★★★

DYSTOPIAN drama. Six­teen-year-old Ruby Daly (Amandla Sten­berg) is a sur­vivor of a pathogen which has killed 98% of the chil­dren’s pop­u­la­tion. Young­sters who are re­sis­tant are colour-coded: Green, Blue and Yel­low are per­mit­ted to live un­der armed guard, while Or­ange and Red are elim­i­nated via lethal in­jec­tion. Ruby is an Or­ange but she lives un­der the radar as a Green in Thur­mond re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion camp. Medic Dr Cate Con­nor (Mandy Moore) risks her life to smug­gle Ruby out of the fa­cil­ity to join the fight against US Pres­i­dent Gray (Bradley Whit­ford) as part of the Chil­dren’s League.

■ Down­load/stream and avail­able on DVD/ Blu-ray from De­cem­ber 3.
