ESSAY QUESTION: describe an important character and why they were important during the film.


V for Vendetta directed by James McTeigue presents a negative view of society and humanity. We are introduced to a shadowy freedom fighter known only as the letter V however it’s V’s subordinate Evey Hammond, which was startling throughout the film.
Evey is introduced in the film as a young woman who works at British Television Network (BTN). She is believed to be a timid, shy yet good citizen of England who is now run by the loather Chancellor Sutler. Its Evey’s outlandish presence that makes her character interesting. She is a character that undergoes a change in views towards herself and her special charm is what’s captivating from the start

Throughout the riveting film Evey undergoes a profound transformation in V's hands. At the start of the film she was more naïve and wasn’t too sure of herself. Evey questions her actions when she saved V in the BTN tower “god what have I done, I maced that detective, why did I do that?? By Evey saying this it make us feel as if it’s the first time she has done such a thing, making her look vulnerable. Her transformation from a timid girl to one that’s not afraid to speak is symbolized in the movie by Evey getting her hair shaved off. Cool lighting is used for effect and to bring out the horror on her face. Her hair getting shaved off is almost a release of negative energy as from that scene onwards we begin to see a change in personality. After the head shaving scene V (dressed up as a character) locks her in a jail cell until she can be “free.? Through the use of dialogue we begin to notice a change. Evey becomes extremely persistent to give up the whereabouts of V. Over time she chooses her life over the whereabouts of V. She finally begins to see what she wants, freedom and justice, which she ‘chooses’ over her life as she realizes that the only way to do that is to get killed in jail. Evey’s change in personality is complete when V confesses that he locked her in jail, through the use of V’s words she comes to terms with the idea that she has now become free. Her character has evolved from a passive woman who is assaulted in a street alley into a strong figure with heroism oozing from her.

Heroism is also an attribute that makes Evey a favorable character. As she has partnered up with V its Evey’s driving force towards the end of the film that takes it through to the next level of heroism. Having V’s picture of blowing up parliament in her mind she also has to take on such consequences that go with it. After two years she revisits V on the night of the ‘vendetta’ the 5th of November to blow up parliament. Her heroism act comes into play when V dies and she has a decision to make, to send the train to blow up parliament or not to. Evey desperately wants to pull the leaver but Inspector Finch has caught her. A true hero is not only one that saves the day but stands their ground even when they are caught in the act. Evey is now standing up to Inspector Finch and not backing down. Her stance is upright and eyes are on full alert showing that she means what she says. Through the use of dialogue she comes to terms with Finch and explains V’s logic by saying “He’s right, this country needs more than a building right now it needs hope? with those words Finch lowers his arm with the gun in it which is a sign that he is backing down. By this Evey has now shown the other side of heroism, not giving up and standing for what is right. Evey has showed heroism also through courage by pulling the leaver to let the train go as she would then be responsible for the parliament being blown to pieces. Evey grows into her heroism role throughout the film through her ‘transformation’ in personality. Evey is truly the real hero as she shows both acts of heroism, never backing down and showing true compassion for what she believes in.

Through the tough times of being a superhero there seems to be a love connection between both Evey and V. They prove to us that not only you need friendship for love but a similar passion. This is important not only for the use of the story but to teach us a valuable lesson by never judging a book by its cover. V is a prime example of this because he wears a mask even though Evey has never seen V’s true appearance Evey quotes “I fell in love with the idea of a man.? The quote also shows that Evey and V have love iS from the inside not the outside. An important scene to this idea is the kissing scene in the train station. There is an over the shoulder shot of V leaning in for a kiss from both Evey then V’s perspective. Then a close up shot is on them when they are kissing. The camera shot is to help show perspective from both angles of Evey and V. The warm lighting gives the audience a warm feeling as though it was meant to be. Evey and V are both partners in crime for the first half of the movie as they work together nicely as a government combat duo. The friendship brought out the fact that they both loved each other as V announces at the train scene “Evey I love you.? V could have said something earlier about his love for her but she realized that friendships are important too. V announcing his love for Evey only came about when V was dying. I thought it was rather selfish of him saying this on his death bed however by V saying this it truly made the scene unforgettable. This is an important aspect of the film as two very different people come together as one to help the people of England. The love story pondered in your mind throughout the film.

Evey was truly a spectacular character that played an important role throughout the film. Through Evey’s transformation she harmonizes the film by showing aspects of heroism and even love. To me Evey is the most involved character as she linked every aspect of the film together. Evey was the most important character because she was the driving force between scenes and transformed to a strong character. By this she was able to capture our attention and let nothing get in her way. To me Evey was the most involved character as she linked every aspect of the film together. She fought for what she believed and never gave up.
