V for Vendetta Précis

James McTeigue the talented director, movie script "V's Speech" (2005) suggest that “Something is terribly wrong with this country.” McTeigue develops and supports his thesis by explaining “Cruelty and injustice, intolerance and oppression” “…once you had the freedom to object, to think you saw fit, you now have censors and systems of surveillance coercing your conformity and soliciting your submission.” In order to make the people of his country “wake up” and fight back, he speaks about the rights they used to have and the basic human rights they have lost. In a calm yet firm way he speaks to all of the people in England to rise against the dictatorship.
