V FOR VENDETTA

$5 Tickets! / $5 Beers!

In this classic dystopian political thriller, directed by James McTeigue, based on the graphic novel by Alan Moore, and screenplay by The Wachowski Brothers, we find a not so disperate alternate future, not far from today, where a neo-fascist regime has subjugated the United Kingdom to a harsh and totalitarian dictatorship. (ironically lorded over by John Hurt.) Clashing Against England's new government, Hugo Weaving portrays V, an anarchist freedom fighter who attempts to ignite a revolution through elaborate terrorist acts, helping to expose the insidious nature behind the powers that be! With the help of Natalie Portman as the charachter Evey, a young, working-class woman caught up in V's mission, and Stephen Rea, who plays the detective leading a desperate quest to stop V from destroying the new English Empire, only to end up helping uncover the truth behind it!
