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.
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.
