Winston writes a letter to the  future
Community clip
Clip from Nineteen Eighty-Four  |  Masterpiece  |  November 9, 2017

At home, Winston thinks about the consequences of thought crimes. In the background, a videotaped confession plays on the home telescreen. Winston removes a brick from the wall and retrieves a book. Within the pages, Winston begins writing a letter to the future, to a future without thought crimes or thought police. That night Winston dreams of the equally dreary world in which he grew up. In the morning he wakes to the omnipresent Big Brother watching from the telescreen.
