A provocative and suspenseful drama, Brideshead Revisited tells a story of forbidden love and the loss of innocence set in the pre-WWII era. Photographed at one of Britain?s largest and most beautiful estates, the film focuses on the character of Charles Ryder who becomes entranced with the noble Marchmain family. Academy Award-winner Emma Thompson co-stars as Lady Marchmain. The rise and fall of Charles' infatuations reflect the decline of a decadent era in England between the wars. The film, based on Evelyn Waugh's acclaimed novel, is sumptuous to look at and fulfilling on many levels.
