V For Vendetta

Graphic novel adaptation, written by the Wachowskis (The Matrix) starring a bald Natalie Portman and masked Hugo Weaving. Set in the future, in a cruel and corrupt, totalitarian Britain, where its citizens are whipped by a bullying nanny state. The nation gets an uppercut when a masked vigilante known as 'V' (Weaving), in a Guy Fawkes-like act, blows up the Old Bailey. Charismatic and skilled in combat and deception, V incites a revolution - urging the people to rise up against their oppressors.
