Helena Bonham Carter introduces A Room With A View at the British Museum, 27 Aug 2015
A Room With A View (James Ivory, 1985) at the British Museum, 27 August 2015: FULL AUDIO of Helena’s introduction, with contributions from ARWAV’s Academy Award-winning costume designer John Bright. Hosted/interviewed by the BFI’s Curator of Public Programmes Rhidian Davies.
At the start, Helena immediately points out that the parasol RD is holding is NOT her/Lucy Honeychurch’s original parasol from the film – as he’d claimed when he first took to the stage!
It isn’t possible to love and part. You will wish that it was. You can transmute love, ignore it, muddle it, but you can never pull it out of you. I know by experience that the poets are right: love is eternal.
