Brideshead Revisited

Brideshead Revisited

BBC TWO

Award-winning BBC Films presents premières of The Edge Of Love, a portrait of Dylan Thomas and the women in his life, and Brideshead Revisited, based on Evelyn Waugh's acclaimed novel. The UK television premières are part of BBC Two's commitment to be the principal home for BBC Films, the film-making arm of the BBC.

Matthew Goode, Anna Madeley and Hayley Atwell star in this adaptation of Evelyn Waugh's classic tale of forbidden love and the loss of innocence in Twenties England.

When Charles Ryder goes up to Oxford, he leaves behind a modest background and joins the flamboyant social world of Sebastian Flyte and his aristocratic Catholic family.

Captivated immediately by the opulent grandeur of Brideshead, the Flytes' ancestral home, Charles's attentions settle on Sebastian's beautiful sister, Lady Julia. The passions between these three play out to devastating effect, as Lady Marchmain attempts to protect her family's religious integrity.

Presented by Miramax Films, the UK Film Council, HanWay Films and BBC Films in association with 2 Entertain and Screen Yorkshire.
