Overview

This powerful drama is based on Ray Bradbury’s internationally acclaimed masterwork of 20th century literature set ina  bleak, dystopian future.  Guy Montag is a fireman. In his world, where television rules and literature is on the brink of extinction, firemen start fires rather than put them out. His job is to destroy the most illegal of commodities, the printed book, along with the houses in which they are hidden.  It is not until he meets 16-year-old Clarisse, who is filled with strange ideas, that he is led into a dangerous and highly combustible situation. Now he must choose between continuing his nonexistent existence and risking everything for the right to think.

“Brilliant . . . Startling and ingenious . . .  Mr. Bradbury’s account of this insane world, which bears many alarming resemblances to our own, is fascinating.” - New York Times

Some adult language and content, not recommended for those under 14.
