Based on the novel by George Orwell

This film comes from the George Orwell novel about a rising poet (Grant) who strives to live a life of unconventionality - even if it means everyone hates him (including the moviegoing audience!). Still, the script is droll and the cast, especially Bonham-Carter, is high caliber.
