Set against the futuristic landscape of totalitarian Britain,
V For Vendetta tells the story of a mild-mannered young woman named
Evey (Natalie Portman) who is rescued from a life-and-death situation by
a masked vigilante known only as “V.” Incomparably charismatic
and ferociously skilled in the art of combat and deception, V ignites a
revolution when he detonates two London landmarks and takes over the government-controlled
airwaves, urging his fellow citizens to rise up against tyranny and oppression.
As Evey uncovers the truth about V’s mysterious background, she also
discovers the truth about herself – and emerges as his unlikely ally
in the culmination of his plot to bring freedom and justice back to a society
fraught with cruelty and corruption.
