Last night Morgan and I had a very nice early dinner at the Nepalese restaurant Yak & Yeti in Glebe, before heading to Broadway Cinemas to see V for Vendetta.
Wow. What a cinema experience! I found the film very involving, quite moving and extremely timely in its themes. I knew very little about the plot beforehand, except for the bare bones of the main ideas, whereas Morgan had read the comic that it's based on. Lots has been written about the parallels with what's going on in the US War on Terror, the use of fear and propaganda in an attempt to control a populace. You can really see the roots of the story in '80s Thatcherite Britain too in my opinion, especially in the demonisation of people from different races and sexualities on home soil. Natalie Portman turns in another great performance. I thought that there were a couple of plot holes in the film, but despite that I'd definately recommend it.
It was a lovely night. Good food, an enjoyable film, fantastic company. Morgan and I are getting to know each other a lot better, and it's a wonderful experience. He's very special.
