TT Cinema: V For Vendetta Screening
November 5 @ 6:30 pm - 9:30 pm£15
Remember, remember the 5th of November. There’s sure to be a few fireworks on our big screen this Guy Fawkes night, as we put on a screening of this visually stunning adaptation of Alan Moore’s iconic graphic novel.
The film takes place in 2032 in an alternate vision of Britain in which – following a harrowing world war – a corrupt and abusive totalitarian government has risen to complete power.
During a threatening run in with the secret police, an unassuming young woman named Evey (Natalie Portman) is rescued by a vigilante named V (Hugo Weaving) – a caped figure as articulate as he is skilled in combat.
V embodies the principles of rebellion against an authoritarian state, donning a mask of vilified would-be terrorist Guy Fawkes to lead a revolution sparked by assassination and destruction – with Evey as his unlikely ally.
V for Vendetta split the critical community upon its release, but it has gone on to take on cult-like status in the political thriller genre.
The film has been seen by many political groups as an allegory of oppression by government; libertarians and anarchists have used it to promote their beliefs – and the iconic mask worn by V has gone on to be something of a symbol – used by groups such as Anonymous to chilling effect.
Tickets are £15 for one, or £20 for a pair when you use the code ‘vendetta’ at checkout. Complimentary cocktail and free snacks throughout included as standard.
