Brideshead Revisited

Brideshead Revisited

Love is not ours to control.
  • So who do you love the most?

A condensed version of the famous novel, this British period drama is set in the years around World War II. It explores issues of class, religion and sex, when a middle-class man has a mostly-platonic relationship with an upper-class male friend, before discovering that his friend's sister was much more interesting. The friend took this badly, seeking refuge in mind-altering substances, while the siblings' mother disapproved of both relationships. However she found herself forced to rely on the lover to get her son back.
