Summary Digitally re-mastered for the very first time, Brideshead revisited is based on Evelyn Waugh's classic novel. Jeremy Irons stars as Charles Ryder, a disillusioned army captain who is moved to reflect on his languid days in the enchanted castle that was Brideshead, home of the aristocratic Merchmain family whose acquaintance Charles made in the company of Oxford classmate, the charming wild-child Sebastian. Brideshead Revisited boasts a distinguished ensemble cast, including Laurence Olivier in his Emmy(R) Award winning role as the exiled Lord Merchmain, Claire Bloom as Lady Merchmain, and the magnificent John Gielgud as Charles' estranged father. Grand locations and a haunting musical score make this a memorable revisit of an irretrievable bygone era.
