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 man
(HUGO WEAVING) known only as “V.” Incomparably charismatic
and ferociously skilled in the art of combat and deception, V ignites
a revolution when he urges 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 plan to bring freedom and
justice back to a society fraught with cruelty and corruption.
