Set against the futuristic landscape of totalitarian Britain, this sci-fi thriller 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 a plan to bring freedom and justice back to a society fraught with cruelty and corruption. Screenplay by the Wachowski Brothers (the Matrix trilogy).
