Evelyn Waugh's 1945 novel is brought to the big screen by director Julian Jarrold. Matthew Goode plays young army officer Charles Ryder, who is scarred for life as a student at Oxford after falling under the spell of the aristocratic family of fellow student Sebastian Flyte (Ben Whishaw). Years later, Charles is stationed to the family's now-deserted home, Brideshead, where he looks back on his visits there as a young man, and his encounters with Lord and Lady Marchmain (Michael Gambon and Emma Thompson), the flamboyant Sebastian and his flirtatious sister Julia (Hayley Atwell).
