(U.K., 2006) Directed by James McTeigue. Screenplay by the Wachowski Brothers, based on the graphic novel by Alan Moore and David Lloyd. Cast: Natalie Portman, Hugo Weaving, Stephen Rea, John Hurt, SinÈad Cusack, Stephen Fry.

Graphic novel turned cult movie V for Vendetta, in a single late show at Cinestudio! There’s never quite been another movie like this one, damned by the British press, and loved by young people – especially those with a progressive bent. In a fascist London of the future, Evey (Natalie Portman) is rescued from a gang of thuggish policemen by V (Hugo Weaving), an anti-government avenger wearing a Guy Fawkes mask – now a symbol of Anonymous and worn at protests around the world. V fights the good fight with an only-crazy-if-it-doesnít-work plan to rally everyday people to fight the powers that be. From the producers of The Matrix, the Wachowski Brothers. “A welcome blast of pop subversion.” David Edelstein, New York magazine. 131 min.
