A new libertarian heroine?
Our local multiplex is now displaying this poster for a new film that normally wouldn’t particularly intrigue me. But here’s the deal:
First, it stars Milla Jovovich, one of my favorite pieces of eye-candy.
Second, Ultraviolet is written and directed by Kurt Wimmer. The last movie Wimmer both wrote and directed was Equilibrium, an underground libertarian classic and the best film nobody saw in 2002.
Set in the late 21st century, Ultraviolet is about a growing civil war between “normal” humans and genetically-modified humans. Jovovich plays the title character, who finds herself protecting a kid who’s been marked for death by the government.
My interest has been, er, aroused.
