A Merry War

Image from wikipedia.

I was out to download the movie version of 1984 and found the movie adaptation of ' Keep the Apisdistra flying' instead. I haven't read the book. And I only just finished reading 'Down and Out in Paris and London'- so I am not reading it for awhile either. 
It has Helena Bonham Carter looking so young and so different. The story is adapted from the book I understand. I can't help but feel that the book was more squalid and sad than the movie, especially the end- I would consider Comstock's return to 'middle class life' as a defeat- it is very cheery in the movie though.
Not the best movie. Nope. Not the best Orwell's writing either.
