Brideshead Revisited is a poignant story of forbidden love and the
loss of innocence set in England prior to the Second World War, a
period when the gentry began to lose some of its many privileges.
The story begins in 1925 at Oxford where Charles Ryder (Matthew Goode)
is befriended by the louche and flamboyant Sebastian Flyte (Ben
Whishaw), son of Lord and Lady Marchmain (Michael Gambon and Emma
Thompson). Charles is quickly seduced by his friend’s opulent and
glamorous world and thrilled by an invitation to ‘Brideshead’, the
Marchmain’s magnificent ancestral home. Beguiled by his surroundings,
Charles becomes infatuated with Sebastian’s beautiful sister, Julia
(Hayley Atwell). As his emotional attachment to the young Marchmains
grows, Charles finds himself increasingly at odds with the family’s
strongest bond: a deep and abiding Catholic faith.
