Excellent adaptation of Orwell's novel, which has never been more relevant. We don't have to merely worry about totalitarian governments anymore. It seems that everyone wants to be despotic. People have abandoned the benefits of a private life, and are now happy to catalyze petty and destructive outrage on social media gleefully silencing or outright destroying those who don't agree with them. This is everywhere now. You don't have to look far at all. I mean, Big Brother seems to be the tribute. ca webmaster's role model. This is an important work that should be seen and pondered, now more than ever. Good direction and exceptional acting here. See this one, or better yet read the book.
