A provocative and suspenseful drama, BRIDESHEAD REVISITED tells an evocative story of forbidden love and the loss of innocence set in the pre-WWII era. In the film, Charles Ryder (Matthew Goode, Match Point, The Lookout) becomes entranced with the noble Marchmain family, first through the charming and provocative Sebastian Flyte (Ben Whishaw, Perfume: The Story of a Murderer), and then his sophisticated sister, Julia (Hayley Atwell, Cassandra's Dream and the upcoming The Duchess). The rise and fall of Charles' infatuations reflect the decline of a decadent era in England between the wars. Academy Award-winner Emma Thompson co-stars as Lady Marchmain.
The film, based on Evelyn Waugh's acclaimed novel is adapted for the screen by multiple BAFTA Award-winner Andrew Davies (Bridget Jones Diary, Bleak House) and Jeremy Brock (The Last King of Scotland) and directed by Julian Jarrold (Becoming Jane).
