A dazzling, high-tech thriller based on Ray Bradbury's classic novel with a decidedly 21st Century sensibility, the HBO Films presentation of Fahrenheit 451
depicts an American future where the media is an opiate, internet bots control everyday routines, history is truncated or rewritten, and brigades of celebrity "firemen" engage in televised search-and-destroy missions to burn books and bring their shamed owners to justice.
Within this paranoid world, a zealous fireman who's being groomed to replace his longtime captain begins to question long-held assumptions about the practice of torching books and other "graffiti" that leaders say were the cause of widespread dissent and, as a result, a "Second Civil War" where millions perished.
After meeting a young informant who's on probation for supporting those who value literature and history, the fireman makes a dangerous decision to assist a group of underground "Eels" who have a bold plan for preserving the contents of thousands of classic books, arts and culture – if they can outwit the all-seeing forces intent on destroying them.
