Each spring semester, VHCC is proud to honor our legendary late colleague, Phil Ferguson, by showing one of his favorite films.
From the Wachowski siblings and Joel Silver, the masterminds behind The Matrix trilogy comes another intriguing, action-packed fantasy-thriller. The premise: Great Britain has become a fascist state. Now, a shadowy freedom fighter known only as "V" (Hugo Weaving) begins a violent guerrilla campaign to destroy those who have embraced totalitarianism. In his quest to liberate England from its oppressive ideological chains, "V" recruits a young woman (Natalie Portman) he's rescued from the secret police to join him on an epic adventure to execute a seemingly impossible task. Based on the DC Comics/Vertigo graphic novel written by Alan Moore and illustrated by David Lloyd.
Natalie Portman, Hugo Weaving, Stephen Rea, John Hurt, Stephen Fry
