The action is set in a slightly futuristic Britain.
The bold narrative cautions against the dangers of corruption, media manipulation, and a pervasive government repression exercised through fear.
Natalie Portman’s intense portrayal of a civilian polarized into rebellion anchors the movie. "V For Vendetta" is a piece of pop-culture-subversive-cinema that operates on multiple levels.
On the surface, it’s a love story set in the depths of social despair, but it’s also a visionary tale of social uprising.
As a reflection of the differences between freedom and repression, the movie provides a social terrain that seems more native than alien, and therein lies its central thesis about fighting for freedom. You come out wanting to do something.
Rated R. 131 mins.
