Engaging production, of which the highlight was the technology used to enhance the story. The acting was solid, with Faber the best. Except for the ending, and the people named for books, not much suspense as it is clear that the hero is going to rebel.

This was a very stirring recreation of Bradbury's blockbuster novel that I remember being so impressed with as a youth. The acting, the staging, and the directing are first class. Bradbury's prescience back in the 50s is truly amazing....note...continued
By Ray Bradbury, based on his novel
Directed by Sharon Ott*
Bradbury’s masterpiece about a future without books comes chillingly to life in an adaptation by the legendary author himself.
Firemen in this futuristic world burn books and hunt down anyone who risks reading them. Free-thought and intellectualism are discouraged, questioning authority is dangerous, and the masses are spoon-fed a diet of interactive reality shows on their huge TVs. Montag, a fireman in charge of burning the forbidden volumes, befriends a young woman who dares to read. Suddenly a hunted fugitive, he must choose between safety and intellectual freedom.
Bradbury’s message still resonates today in this production utilizing cutting-edge special effects and projections.
