Nineteen Eighty-Four (1984)

Directed by
Michael Radford

Based on George Orwell's classic novel written in 1948 (Orwell reversed the last two digits), this film was originally released in 1984 providing a stark contrast between the fictional oppressive future and the reality of the day.

This deeply moving film focuses on the life of Winston Smith (John Hurt), a bureaucrat employed in the rewriting of world history.

In this totalitarian future, Big Brother watches and listens to every aspect of human life: nothing remains hidden and human emotion is forbidden.

Winston rebels against the system - both by keeping a secret diary and by falling in love with Julia (Suzanna Hamilton).

They plan to escape the horror of this oppressive life - but soon learn that nobody can really escape - and these illicit lovers find themselves subjected to the terrors of Room 101 for even trying.

This is a truly disturbing film.
