Helena Bonham Carter in ‘Keep the Aspidistra Flying’
Helena Bonham Carter smokes a cigarette while filming a scene from Keep The Aspidistra Flying in London on April 15, 1997. The film was a romantic comedy based on the 1936 novel by George Orwell. Helena Bonham Carter played the girlfriend of an ad copywriter, who is dismayed when he quits his job to write poetry instead. Helena Bonham Carter was born in 1966, so she turned 31 the year this photo was taken. The aspidistra is a type of plant that was favored in English homes and gardens of the Victorian era.
