Brideshead Revisited (again)

There's a new film due out later this year of Evelyn Waugh's novel. I am a devotee of the wonderful BBC version, as evident here and here, but am looking forward to seeing this (even if there are murmurings of it departing from the book in places - it will certainly involve greater compression than the TV version).

Here's the official trailer:



and the YouTube link, in case the above has some sort of spasm, as occasionally happens.

What a treat it was to stroll through Castle Howard a couple of years ago but I couldn't help feeling it was an old family house! I not only knew the place well from Brideshead, Evelyn Waugh fashioned Sebastian on Peter Rodd a distant rello of mine who had been married to Nancy Mitford! Wonderful! Wonderful! nothing can be as good as the TV series but I'll still go and see the Movie!

Ooohh, I think I agree with above, nothing could be as good as the TV series. I do like the book too.
