Predestination (2014)

Predestination is an Australian science fiction mystery thriller film written and directed by Michael and Peter Spierig. It is based on the Robert A. Heinlein short story All You Zombies.

The movie begins in medias res as a time travelling agent is trying to disarm a bomb that explodes and burns his face. Someone approaches and helps him to grasp his time travelling device, bringing him to a hospital in the future.

While the agent is recovering from facial reconstruction, we learn that he had been trying to prevent the “Fizzle Bomber’s” attack on New York, in 1975. After his recovery he receives his last assignment.

The agent moves to 1970 New York. As a bartender, he starts a conversation with one of the customers. The customer, John, reveals he writes true confession articles under the pen name “The Unmarried Mother”. This pseudonym is explained by his biography. He grew up as “Jane” in an orphanage. As an adult she applied for “Space Corp”, but she was later disqualified because of a medical condition. She met a man that she fell in love with, but later that man disappeared. It turns out that Space Corp worked for the Temporal Agency, and this agency now wanted to recruit her. However, Jane became pregnant with her ex-lover’s baby. The agency broke off contact, and later her baby was stolen. Furthermore, she found out that she was intersex and that giving birth had led to complications that required her to become a man. Since then, John has been living a bitter life as “The Unmarried Mother”…

.. and that’s not even the weirdest bit…
