Lubbock’s Alamo Drafthouse Remembers 5th of November with ‘V for Vendetta’
Tonight at 10pm, Lubbock's Alamo Drafthouse is doing a special screening of the movie that made Americans remember remember the 5th of November: 'V for Vendetta'.
'V for Vendetta' is the story of a terrorist (Hugo Weaving) and his protege (Evey as played by Natalie Portman) in a dystopian and not-too-distant future. In this future, freedoms are very limited and groups of people are persecuted for their religion, political leanings, and sexual orientation.
Although the film takes place in England and the iconic Guy Fawkes mask is based on an real English person, many Americans have latched on to it as a symbol of radical freedom, including Libertarians, anarchists and most prominently, the hacker collective known as Anonymous.
To say this film was and continues to be timely is an understatement. Then, and know, most people feel as if there are tyrannical forces at play in the government, or that there easily could be. It's really a perfect film to capture the collective unease of Tuesday's presidential election, which has caused anxiety for the future in many people, despite whatever their affiliation may be.
