"Brideshead Revisited" is a timeless classic which has inspired countless adaptations due to its emotive and masterfully-crafted narrative. A poignant story of forbidden love and the loss of innocence set in the glamorous upper-class world prior to the Second World War, Waugh's most famous novel is partly autobiographical and is a gripping study of aristocratic life behind closed doors. The story begins in 1925 at Oxford where Charles Ryder is befriended by the louche and flamboyant Sebastian Flyte, son of Lord and Lady Marchmain. Charles is quickly seduced by his friend's opulent and glamorous world and thrilled by an invitation to 'Brideshead', the Marchmain's magnificent ancestral home. Beguiled by his surroundings, Charles becomes infatuated with Sebastian's beautiful sister Julia. As his emotional attachment to the young Marchmains grows, Charles finds himself increasingly at odds with the family's strongest bond: a deep and abiding Catholic faith. The reader Jeremy Northam is a well-established British film and television actor, and appeared in "Gosford Park" and "The Tudors".
