1984 Adapted by Robert Owens, et al. "I do not believe that the kind of society I describe necessarily will arrive, but I believe that something resembling it could arrive. The moral to be drawn from the dangerous nightmare situation is a simple one: Don't let it happen. It depends on you." -George Orwell. Orwell depicts with great power the horrors of man's fate in a society where Big Brother is always watching—where everything that is not prohibited is compulsory. We now live in a future that Orwell could never have imagined, but the fact is that as we get more and more connected digitally, we are moving closer and closer to a world where Big Brother is constantly watching. This adaptation, written in 1963, is still the most powerful telling of this timeless story.
