Nineteen Eighty-Four (1984)
(English with German Subtitles)
Following the rise of terms like “alternative facts” and “fake news”, George Orwell’s classic book “1984,” about a dystopian future where critical thought is suppressed under a totalitarian regime, has seen a surge in sales in 2017, leading its publisher to have tens of thousands of new copies printed.
The best-known Film Adaptation of the story is Michael Radford’s critically acclaimed 1984 retelling.
A man loses his identity while living under a repressive regime. In a story based on George Orwell’s classic novel, Winston Smith (John Hurt) is a government employee whose job involves the rewriting of history in a manner that casts his fictional country’s leaders in a charitable light. His trysts with Julia (Suzanna Hamilton) provide his only measure of enjoyment, but lawmakers frown on the relationship — and in this closely monitored society, there is no escape from Big Brother.
