V for Vendetta
A dystopian story
In James McTeigue dystopian movie script, “V’s Speech” (2005), He emphasizes that there is something faulty about the society we live in, and how the government needs to alter the way they rule the society.
First, the author shows this by saying “Fear got the best of you, and in your panic you turned to the now high chancellor, Adam Sutler, who promised you order, he promised you peace, and all he demanded in return was your silent, obedient consent”, this quote is significant because it shows how people can be easily manipulated by their own government, then the author says” I thought we could mark this November the 5th, a day that is sadly no longer remembered”, this also displays how society forgets what the government wants them to forget.
In V’s Speech, the author uses quotes to imply his thoughts on why the government is corrupted, why the society itself is one big standstill, and why people want the perfect society and would do anything to have it; in order to show how people should not let their fears take away there freedoms and how they should strive for a society that is united not divided.
The people that McTeigue is directing his beliefs to is the people of London, and throughout “V’s Speech” his tone of voice changes from a humorous tone to a serious tone then lastly to an infuriated tone; all of these tones put together to show the importance of society, the main focus of the creation of “V’s Speech” was to shed light on the issues involving the government and society and McTeigue did just that.
