Brideshead Revisited

This movie is from our archive and is not currently screening.

Brideshead revisited, the epic novel of life, death and spiritual renewal among the English Catholic gentry, is widely described as Evelyn Waugh's greatest work.

Whilst at Oxford University a chance encounter with the charming and decadent Sebastian Flyte (Ben Whishaw), son of Lord Marchmain, draws Charles Ryder (Matthew Goode) into the exclusive world of British high society. For the impressionable Charles, Sebastian's world of money, glamour and outrageous behaviour makes for a seductive cocktail. Sebastian takes Charles under his wing and when he's invited to Brideshead, the Flyte family's magnificent ancestral home, Charles becomes infatuated with Julia (Hayley Atwell), Sebastian's beautiful sister.
