In a future where a failed climate change experiment has killed all life except for the survivors who boarded the Snowpiercer (a train that travels around the globe), a new class system emerges.

Characters

  • Chris Evans' character, Curtis Everett, leads a rebellion against the oppressive class system on a perpetually moving train.
  • Jamie Bell's character in Snowpiercer is a rebellious and loyal member of the lower-class passengers fighting against the oppressive system.
  • Tilda Swinton's character, Minister Mason, is a manipulative spokesperson for the elite, enforcing class divisions on the train.

Ending

In the ending of Snowpiercer, Curtis, the protagonist, reaches the front of the train and confronts Wilford, the creator. He learns that the system of inequality on the train is necessary for its survival. Curtis decides to sacrifice himself by allowing Yona, a young girl, to take control of the train. She is left with the hope of creating a more just society as the train emerges from the tunnel into a frozen world, symbolizing a new beginning.
