Equilibrium is a 2002 Action film written and directed by Kurt Wimmer and stars Christian Bale, Sean Bean and Emily Watson.
Set in a futuristic world which is ruled by a totalitarian regime that has decided it can eliminate all wars by suppressing emotions with a drug called Prozium: books, art and music are strictly forbidden and feeling is a crime punishable by death.
John Preston (Christian Bale) is a high ranking Grammaton Cleric who'e job it is to seak out and dectroy anything that can cause emotion but after missing a dose of Prozium he starts to feel again and suddenly becomes the only person capable of overthrowing the regime.
I loved this film and still do 12 years later, I had some friends say that it would of been a even bigger hit if it had the money behind it that The Matrix.......they are spot on! This is one of the few films I can easily watch a few times a year and never get bored of it.
