A real window into the era's more's and beliefs. The acting was incredible and the motivation was "spot" on. Movies of this type are rare and that is unfortunate.

Brideshead Revisited was a lousy movie! It was a waste of time and money. It was anti anything happy, anti love, anti marriage, anti ...It is sad that Emma Thompson participated in this one. Not her usual caliber of movie. It also should have been an R rated movie. JUNK!

Best movie of the summer, hands down. Entertaining, thought provoking, great cinematography, and the story line could be about any family, anywhere. 5 thumbs up, and don't know why this movie got no press.....

I actually really enjoyed it. An intelligent watcher might enjoy the subtly in the themes presented. Worth a watch and an open mind.

Saw the movie today---If you like a homosexual theme; I f you like alcoholism; bashing of religious belief systems;poorly paced movies; and a family that puts all on a guilt trip---You will love this movie. The cinematography, however, was superlative.Wayne

A very noble movie, which makes it interesting at times, but not often enough. Full Review

Mr. Goode shows all the charisma of a stalk of boiled asparagus molded into the likeness of Jeremy Irons. Full Review

The saga ultimately lacks the emotional wallop of the TV version. But its clever writing, strong performances and sumptuous production design make for a rich experience nonetheless. Full Review

Dennis Harvey
Offers lush and compelling drama drawn from Evelyn Waugh's beloved novel. Purists may blanch at the screenplay's changes to the source material's narrative fine points, but its spirit survives intact. Full Review
