This was a fantastic film demonstrating what happens when society turns its back on democracy, democracy turns its back on the people. I guess i particularly like this story because i can relate it so much to current affairs in the UK, although the film depicts a conservative MP who elects himself supreme chancellor ironically it resembles so much the "New Labour" government of today with its CCTV cameras everywhere, hypocrisy and lies. Not to mention the unelected PM and unelected lords now roaming in democratic society, to quote the film "you are all to blame".
Natalie Portman's acting was fantastic as was Hugo Weaving's who was in most scenes apart from some still acted by the originally cast James Purefoy before he quit due to problems with the mask.
I can also understand why Stephen Fry wanted to play a part in the film.
This film is well worth a watch
