About 1984

Based on George Orwell’s futuristic novel, "1984"  brings us the story of Winston Smith and a stark vision of a world in which freedom of action, word, and thought are controlled by Big Brother. How far are we from realizing Orwell’s nightmare? Are we already there? As the story of Winston’s fight for individual identity unfolds, the vision grows increasingly terrifying as the world it depicts grows uncomfortably familiar. See this ferocious and provocative adaptation of one of the most prescient works of literature of the last century.

Sullivan does an exemplary job of distilling 1984's political essence.
Los Angeles Times
Sullivan has boiled down the book's 300 pages to a scant 100 minutes, culling the story's political essentials while retaining the melancholy whimsy of its her's life.
