"V For Vendetta" trailer Video
Set against the futuristic landscape of totalitarian Britain, "V For Vendetta" tells the story of a mild-mannered young woman named Evey (Natalie Portman) who is rescued from a life-and-death situation by a masked man (Hugo Weaving) known only as "V." Incomparably charismatic and ferociously skilled in the art of combat and deception, V ignites a revolution when he urges his fellow citizens to rise up against tyranny and oppression. As Evey uncovers the truth about V's mysterious background, she also discovers the truth about herself and emerges as his unlikely ally in the culmination of his plan to bring freedom and justice back to a society fraught with cruelty and corruption. Based on the acclaimed graphic novel "V For Vendetta" by Alan Moore ("The Watchmen," "From Hell") and illustrator David Lloyd. Directed by James McTeigue from a screenplay by Andy Wachowski and Larry Wachowski. Also starring Stephen Rea, John Hurt, and Stephen Fry.

"Separate Lies" is a compelling, humor-tinged romantic mystery that is not so much a "who done it" as an exploration of the riddle of why people make the fatal errors they do - in life, in marriage and when their decisions count the very most. By exposing the raw inner world of an ideal-seeming marriage that has fallen into peril in the wake of a crime, the film weaves themes of secrecy, betrayal and forgiveness through a driving narrative and intense performances focused on uncovering the primal human truths that can lie beneath the most placid surfaces. From Julian Fellowes, the academy award-winning writer of "Gosford Park". Starring Tom Wilkinson, Emily Watson, and Rupert Everett.
