I loved this movie! It took me several days to watch it because it is hard to understand the British accented dialogue while children are screaming and the husband is asking for dinner. This is a perfect laundry fold movie because it transports you to another world and makes you forget your domestic drivel. Emma Thompson is downright delicious as the evil mom who tries to control her children with religion. A must see!

Inspired by the best-selling novel, Brideshead Revisited is a riveting drama of love, power and betrayal, featuring stunning performances by Academy Award(R) winner Emma Thompson (Best Actress, Howards End, 1992) and Matthew Goode (The Lookout). When the charming aristcrat Sebastian invites Charles Ryder to his family's estate, Charles becomes seduced by the opulent lifestyle of the Marchmain family, and by Julia, Sebastian's sister. As their romance deepens, repercussions follow, and Charles discovers that at Brideshead, love, money and power come at a price. It's a spellbinding story you'll want to revisit again and again.
