“It was a bright cold day in April, and the clocks were striking thirteen.”

The classic George Orwell story set in a world where absolute conformity in action, word and thought including loyalty to Big Brother is demanded. In 1984, the world is divided into three vast states, whose inhabitants are dominated by all powerful governments. Winston (John Hurt), a worker, starts an illegal love affair with Julia, and becomes the target of a brain-washing campaign to force him to conform.
