“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. “Have any of you guys ever seen one of these bad things for real? We’ve burned almost every physical book in the country. By the time you guys grow up there won’t be one book left.”
“Did fireman use to put out fires?” “That’s a classic lie. Have you used your drops today?” “I want to know why we burn?” “You’re not born equal you must be made equal by the fire and then we can be happy.” I got things inside my head that don’t make sense, dreams that I can’t explain.”
“They’re lying to you.” “We have an important task for you.” “Anybody sees me I’m dead.” Directed and written by Ramin Bahrani starring Michael B. Jordan, Sofia Boutella and Michael Shannon HBO will debut ‘Fahrenheit 451’ in May 2018.
