Other than Pixar and other animated stuff, it is important in EVERY movie genre IMO.
It's possible we're kind of on the track to corporate rule now. Greater income inequality is already leading to a stratified society and perhaps, in time, to a kind of caste system. And it will all be perfectly legal and legit and the illusion of democracy will be maintained. I can see the kind of world Kiera will inhabit. It's not pretty, but it's not the kind of fascist re-writing of the current system, a complete abandonment of human and civil rights, that was portrayed in the last episode. I can't picture a situation like that ever coming to pass here (and absolutely never in Canada fercrissake), and certainly not in a mere 20 years time.
How about 40, 50, 60 years?
I have no doubt it will eventually happen.
Americans aren't really known for violent civil disobedience....as long as we have our chocolate ice cream, TV, and beer, there will be no massive push-back from the Great Unwashed.
What's funny is I have an easier time accepting time travel and her super-suit than the slave-labor-fueled dystopia we saw depicted in this last episode.
Ye of little faith....

True, but this sci-fi trope is getting long in the tooth.
We need more creative writing.....
