sweeney todd quote

Everyone tells you it’s all right to cry, but not enough people say it’s all right if you don’t want people to know.
—  Lemony Snicket
I’m drawn to emotionally damaged characters because there is more to unlock.
—  Helena Bonham Carter
And she would fall
So soft
So young
So lost
And oh, so beautiful.
—  Sweeney Todd: the Demon Barber of Fleet Street

“Tim helped a lot and is a very relaxed director, though I was terribly nervous—and Johnny was great too. On the first day of shooting, I was standing with him on a boat in the middle of the studio. And I’m like, “Is this actually happening? Am I here?” Now, Johnny can tell I’m a wreck. I’m shaking while there’s this huge fan blowing our hair wild. But then he leans over and says, “Jamie, that’s our biggest fan.” It was a great way to break the tension.“ Jamie Campbell Bower

Well, you come home
I find you waiting
And we’re together
And we’ll do wonders
Won’t we?
You there, my friend
Come, let me hold you
Now, with a sigh
You grow warm in my arms
My friend
My clever friend!
Bonham Carter gives a haunting performance. Not the cockney fishwife created by Angela Lansbury in the famous 1979 production, but a stitched-together soul, driven to unspeakable actions by economic woe and twisted love. She yearns, heartbreakingly, for better things.
