Matt Damon plays a working stiff in a burnt out version of L.A. Once he is exposed to radiation his only hope is to get to Elysium, which is an orbiting space station that rich folk get to go to to get their tissue remade. Matt Damons character tries to wage an expedition to the elysium. Jodie Foster play a Minister of Defense in the  elysium, who tries to keep the interlopers out. An interesting look at the rich vs- poor and health care. This didn’t quite make it for me as you get uninterested in it.
