V for Vendetta
People should not be afraid of their government, Governments should be afraid of their people
"Set against the futuristic landscape of totalitarian Britain, V For Vendetta tells the story of a mild-mannered young woman named Evey (NATALIE PORTMAN) who is rescued from a life-and-death situation by a masked man (HUGO WEAVING) known only as “V.” Incomparably charismatic and ferociously skilled in the art of combat and deception, V ignites a revolution when he urges his fellow citizens to rise up against tyranny and oppression. As Evey uncovers the truth about V’s mysterious background, she also discovers the truth about herself – and emerges as his unlikely ally in the culmination of his plan to bring freedom and justice back to a society fraught with cruelty and corruption."
just got to know of this upcoming film after visiting a friend's blog. looks like a great story. the comic, i mean. what about the film? only time will tell... i like the film's tagline though. would be great to have a t-shirt with that tag printed on it. much more powerful than "save the white elephants"
