H is for hope.

“Because he was right. This country needs more than a building right now. It needs hope.”

Before Evey pulls the lever for what will eventually destroy Parliament and give the people hope, she has the following exchanges with Chief Inspector Finch:

Finch: Why are you doing this?

Evey Hammond: Because he was right.

Finch: About what?

Evey Hammond: That the world needs more than just a building right now. It needs hope.

I chose this quote and this scene because to me it defines the major idea of the move. To me this movie is about restoring hope to the local people regardless of the cost and deaths because it is hope and a new way of life that they deserve. In the end, true hope rested on Evey’s shoulders, even though V seemed to be seeking revenge and he had spent years planning this plot, he could not pull the final lever. This was left up to Evey and she decided to begin this revolution so that her people could chose the freedom and liberty that they deserved over the safety and tight regulation they had been experiencing. This idea of brining people hope by destroying an important building seems very dark, but it is what the building represents that was able to provide hope to the people. By destroying this building, the everyday people were shown that others were willing to fight for them and they can have a voice. Just this small glimmer of hope caused these people to dress in masks and stand up to their harsh government for what they deserved. Also, I think it is the sound of the music and the fireworks and the celebration that continues to fuel the hope inside the everyday people that will not be distinguished without much fight.

    The word you choose for H connected with your entire blog nicely. And your picture represented the quote too! Good job!

    I was going to use this quote in my blog as well because I think it represents a lot of what the movie was about. I also agree that the music definitely allows for the audience to feel hope and joy because the music seems joyful.

    I think it is crazy that simply blowing up a building creates hope (I agree with you) but I also feel like it will create a lot of chaos. However doing so shows other countries that the people have more power than they think, which is awesome

    Hope is a great word to describe this movie. It is all based upon the people’s hope initially within its government and then within the character V. As you noted, there are several differences in each person’s way to inspire hope, but hope is very powerful and once enacted, its possibilities are endless. Nice post

    Hope is a good choice for this post. V remained hidden behind a mask because he only represented an idea. That idea is only successful by instilling hope in the citizens of England.
