Released in 1984, starring John Hurt and Richard Burton. A glimpse of what’s already here, but not quite fully implemented.
Nineteen Eighty-Four, also known as 1984, is a 1984 British dystopian science fiction film written and directed by Michael Radford, based upon George Orwell’s 1949 novel of the same name.
The movie was filmed during April, May, and June 1984. The closing credits declare that “This film was photographed in and around London during the period April-June 1984, the exact time and setting imagined by the author (George Orwell).”
An author and journalist, Orwell was one of the most prominent and influential figures in twentieth-century literature. His unique political allegory Animal Farm was published in 1945, and it was this novel, together with the dystopia of Nineteen Eighty-Four (1949), which brought him world-wide fame.
