NINETEEN EIGHTY-FOUR
1984, MGM/Park Circus, 113 min, UK, Dir: Michael Radford

John Hurt and Suzanna Hamilton are lovers trapped in an oppressive police state who heroically fight against the all-powerful "Big Brother." Director Michael Radford's (IL POSTINO) adaptation of George Orwell's classic novel perfectly captures the book's deep sense of unease, and Richard Burton gives a great late-career performance as an evil but human government official.
