Brideshead Revisited

Adaptation of Evelyn Waugh's classic novel about an impressionable Oxford undergraduate and his infatuation with a flamboyant alcoholic young lord and his grand ancestral home.

Film adaptation of the novel by Evelyn Waugh. In the early spring of 1944 Charles Ryder, a disillusioned army Captain, arrives at Brideshead Castle, the new Brigade Headquarters. It is a place he knows well and he is transported back in time to 1922 and his first meeting with Sebastian Flyte, the younger son of Lord Marchmain. Charles Ryder proceeds to tell in flashback the story of his association with the castle and the doomed aristocratic Flyte family.
