“Have you every seen a physical book before?” “Do you want to know what’s inside? Insanity, chaos.” In HBO’s adaptation of Ray Bradbury’s classic novel ‘Fahrenheit 451’ depicts a time period where history is outlawed and “firemen” burn books. “By the time you guys grow up there won’t be one book left.” “Yes sir!”
“Little knowledge is a dangerous thing, news facts…burn it.” In a future where the media is an opiate, history is rewritten Michael Jordan plays Guy Montag, a young fireman who struggles with his role as law enforcer after meeting a young girl…and begins to rebel against society and with his “mentor”, played by Michael Shannon.
“We’re not born equal, you must be made equal by the fire.” Directed and written by Ramin Bahrani starring Michael B. Jordan, Sofia Boutella and Michael Shannon HBO will debut ‘Fahrenheit 451’ in May 2018.
Looking forward to this. What do you think?
