Based on the timeless novel by Evelyn Waugh, Brideshead Revisited took a staggering two years to make and is the equivalent of seven feature films back to back. Waugh tells the story of romantic yearning and loss set in the world of British aristocracy. The story is told in flashbacks as Jeremy Irons, an officer in the British Army, is stationed with his company at a remote country home that turns out to be Brideshead, a place where he called home for many years when he was growing up. The stationing triggers a multitude of memories of his youth and young manhood, his loves, life and his journey of faith and anguish.
