News & Interviews for Brideshead Revisited
Critic Reviews for Brideshead Revisited
it still has the high-class dramatic feel you'd expect from something you would have watched on PBS twenty years ago
Occasionally interesting, always beautiful and regularly tedious, the film attempts to capture a time and a feeling yet it ultimately fails to provide the depth needed to make it wholly successful.
Certainly passable, but less than spectacular, Brideshead Revisited is an authentic and decent adaptation of a well-known novel, but nothing more.
Audience Reviews for Brideshead Revisited
An interesting yet certainly not memorable drama with some very fine performances and a strong story about family, religion and faith in the context of the decadence of British aristocracy prior to WWII, and it may leave you thinking about it long after the film is over.
Dull, slow moving but visually beautiful. Uncharismatic leads are blown off the screen whenever Emma Thompson is on, displaying her range by playing a markedly different character than usual and as always doing it masterfully. Once she's gone from the scene its just pretty pictures with people you neither really like or care about.
Gruesome Hatchet Job of My Favourite Novel. "Utterly Macarbe".
Brideshead Revisited Quotes
|Sebastian Flyte:||I should like to bury something precious, in every place I've been happy. And then when I was old, and ugly and miserable, I could come back, and dig it up, and remember.|
