Brideshead Revisited



I'm very excited about this, the trailer looks brilliant. Can you tell if it is faithful to the book or not? I can't really remember it at all. I think I'll watch the movie before reading the book and then I'm less likely to be disappointed with the adaptation.

  1. WOW~! Did you read the novel the movie was based on? If so, what did you think of it?

  4. The reviews I've heard in the UK suggest that it's very thin and very much underplays the whole of the homosexual nature of the book. John Mortimer, who adapted the novel for a brilliant television series tried hard to be polite about it but failed. If you haven't seen the series and can get hold of a copy then do. It was superb.
