This adaptation remained more faithful to the plot of the novel, although it 
diverged significantly in its ending. In the film, Winston’s confession is broadcast 
publicly after he is released from the Ministry of Love. While the film—like the 
novel—ends with Winston encountering an image of Big Brother, the film seems to
indicate that the image instills shame, regret, or grief in Winston, while the image in
the novel instills love for Big Brother. Like its predecessor, this adaptation was 
well-received, but not a major hit.
