R For R Rating

MPAA’s Classification and Rating Administration has given Warner Bros. Pictures’ V For Vendetta an R rating for strong violence and some language.

Set against the futuristic landscape of totalitarian Britain, the film 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 vigilante (Hugo Weaving) known only as “V.” Incomparably charismatic and ferociously skilled in the art of combat and deception, V ignites a revolution when he detonates two London landmarks and takes over the government-controlled airwaves, urging 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 plot to bring freedom and justice back to a society fraught with cruelty and corruption.

The film, opening March 17, is based on the acclaimed graphic novel “V For Vendetta” by Alan Moore (“The Watchmen,” “From Hell”) and illustrator David Lloyd.
