Based on George Orwell's classic novel, Winston Smith (John Hurt) is a government employee whose job involves the re-writing of history in a manner that casts his fictional country's leaders in a charitable light. His trysts with Julia (Suzannah Hamilton) provide his only measure of enjoyment, but lawmakers frown on the relationship. In this closely monitored society, there is no escape from Big Brother. The classic British dystopian science fiction film is 'solidly made, sternly acted, and a faithful realisation of the dystopian novel.' Winston commits the crime of independent thought and is sent to the chillingly labelled 'Ministry of Love' and placed at the mercy of O'Brien, a coolly treacherous leader determined to control his thoughts and crush his soul. Dozens of familiar phrases have entered the English language from this book and film like Ministry of Truth, Telescreen, Doublethink, Room 101, and Unpersons in totalitarian Oceania, where thought criminals are 'rehabilitated'. Colour film, 106 minutes.
