For sure, be careful of the remakes; there are some that totally turn around the meaning in the book.
In one remake, shown on TV about ten years ago, the final scene is of an American family in a bright, shiny station wagon, driving up to the ruins of the farm on a bright, sunny day. The implication is that, finally, America might have a chance at getting this 'socialism' thing right.
My son, having just read the book in Jr. High, noticed the difference in the endings right away. He was aghast...why did they so blatantly change the ending in the book? He at first marked it up just to hollywood happy ending-itis, but then recognized the political nature of the manipulation. It is blatant, heavy handed, and crude; the left is counting on the fact that few Americans will actually have read the whole book, and fewer still will have comprehended it. Part and parcel of their contempt for those they wish to rule over for their own good. These people are truly fucking sick in the head.
It was a confirmation of his introduction to the fact of American left wing propaganda in American media.
The movie ending on TV was totally unlike the ending in Orwell's book which provides no hope whatsoever of anyone anywhere ever geting this slop right...which is why there had to be a frantic rewrite and cleanup in Aisle 9...
