Synopsis:
Oxford 1925. The unworldly undergraduate Charles Ryder (Matthew Goode) is befriended by the flamboyant and aristocratic Sebastian Flyte (Ben Whishaw), son of Lord and Lady Marchmain (Michael Gambon and Academy Award-Winner Emma Thompson), and is thrilled by an invitation to Brideshead, the Marchmain's magnificent ancestral home. Beguiled by his surroundings, Charles is entranced by the opulent house and the glamourous world of this eccentric family. While Lord Marchmain lives in Venice with his mistress, Lady Marchmain runs the house, the failure of her marriage redoubling the fierce Catholic faith imposed on her children ? Sebastian and the beautiful Julia (Hayley Atwell).
As Charles's infatuation moves from the provocative Sebastian to the sophisticated Julia, it is a faith with which he finds himself increasingly at odds?

Different, but excellent - Brideshead Revisited review by CP Customer

Spoiler Alert
23/07/2009

It's almost impossible to approach this with an open mind if you're familiar with the TV series, but if you can enjoy it in it's own right it is a gorgeous movie and a fine interpretation of the book. Leaning more heavily on the thread of Catholicism and duty in the book it supports the strength of Lady Marchmain's character (Emma Thompson) and the required visuals - Castle Howard, brilliant tailoring, beautiful young things, golden Oxford - are all in evidence. I found Sebastian's swishiness just a touch irritating (he's more fey than the Anthony Andrews version) but, overall, it's excellent and well worth seeing.
