A Merry War
I really do like your hat.
Also known as Keep the Aspidistra Flying , from the novel by George Orwell on which it is based. This is the story of an idealistic young wanna-be poet, who dreams of emulating the greats of English literature. He quits he well paying job in an ad agency, to make his way writing poetry. Needless to say, this plan is not a roaring success, and he drifts lower down the social scale, losing his friends and wanna-be lover along the way, while berating the evil of money. But the young lady persists, and uses the oldest trick in the book to bring him to his senses, and back to the staid, safe, conventional middle-class existence. And they all lived happily after. (Really.) |
This is a charming and witty comedy for the art circuit.
