Fifteen students from Highams Park School attended a screening of The Young and Prodigious T.S. Spivet and were given the opportunity to sit in on a Q&A session with Helena Bonham Carter. Students were entertained by Ms. Bonham Carter’s stories about her life in the film industry and her choices in the roles she has played. When asked her thoughts on the event, Ms. Bonham Carter said,
I loved it, and I loved their interest and enthusiasm. So many people watch films on their own at home, and it’s not a communal thing, so for me to sit here and hear the laughter, the appreciation and the jokes was wonderful.
The special event was hosted by the film education charity Into Film. For more information on the charity, visit their site here or follow them on Twitter! Here is a photo of Ms. Bonham Carter at the event:
