"Work hard, increase production, prevent accidents, and be happy." THX 1138, George Lucas' directorial debut, presents a cold, dystopian future in which individual thought and love are forbidden. But two citizens dare to rebel.
LUH 3417, a disenchanted surveillance worker, consciously stops taking her mandatory drugs — medication that suppresses emotions — and gives placebos to her roommate, THX 1138. Now free to feel, the two fall in love, but find themselves on the run for breaking laws of conformity.Released March 11, 1971
