Bald in ‘V for Vendetta’

“Remember, remember the 5th of November, the gun powder treason and plot. “I know of no reason why the gun powder treason should ever be forgot” . Sound familiar? Yes this is a tag line from the movie “V for Vendetta” a tale of Evey Hammond was portrayed by Natalie Portman.
The tale unfolds in a futuristic Great Britain which is under a dictatorial regime. A mysterious freedom fighter known only as “V” uses terrorist tactics to fight against the totalitarian society. In one of his pursuits he rescued a mild-mannered woman named Evey (Portman).
As Evey discloses the truth about V’s mysterious background, she also uncovers the truth about herself – and emerges as his unlikely ally in the transpiration of his plot to bring freedom and justice back to a society laden with cruelty and corruption.
Natalie Portman really conveys herself remarkably as a bald character. And I dare say that Evey Hammond is the most challenging character Portman ever depicted, not to mention shaving her lovely hair…and YES, she looks extremely stunning and gorgeous, BALD!.
