Fahrenheit 451 – HBO Review
Today I’ll be discussing Fahrenheit 451. Fahrenheit 451 is a 2018 American dystopian drama film written and directed by Ramin Bahrani, based on the book of the same name by Ray Bradbury. It stars Michael B. Jordan, Michael Shannon, Sofia Boutella, Lilly Singh, Grace Lynn Kung and Martin Donovan.
In the future, after a second civil war, most reading in America is confined to the Internet, called “the 9,” and most books are banned — except for emoji versions of The Bible, To the Lighthouse, and Moby Dick — and ordered to be burned by the “firemen” who are part of the Ministry, an authoritarian dictatorship that blames unhappiness, mental illness, and conflicting opinions on reading the “wrong” literature.
