He embarks on a passionate (and illegal) affair with a young woman (Suzanna Hamilton) but they are soon caught and Smith undergoes a nightmarish brainwashing at the hands of the chief inquisitor O'Brien (Richard Burton).

This stunning film adaptation journeys straight to the heart of the nightmare portrayed in George Orwell's terrifying classic. John Hurt is "perfectly cast" (Radio Times) as the doomed rebel, and Richard Burton is a model of powerful restraint as a sadistic agent of the ruling party.
Winston Smith (Hurt) endures a squalid existence in totalitarian Oceania under the constant surveillance of Big Brother. But his life takes a horrifying turn when he begins a forbidden love affair and commits the crime of independent thought. Sent to the chillingly labelled "Ministry of Love," he is placed at the mercy of O' Brien (Burton), a coolly treacherous leader determined to control his thoughts...and crush his soul.
