Brideshead Revisited Revisited

I'm very excited to hear that they're making a new movie of Brideshead Revisited. I loved this book, and the miniseries starring Jeremy Irons was beautiful, too. Having spent part of my junior year studying at Oxford, I had a special appreciation for the story, which is partially set there. If you haven't read it, it's amazing, especially if you have any Anglophile tendencies. The movie is going to star Emma Thompson and relative unknowns as Charles Ryder and Sebastian. I hope it's good.

Hi Jeni,
Glad you made it back easily--Jewel said that Alex kept his five star rating all the way home. What a doll. Anyway, I just read about the Brideshead remake--can't wait. I just started rereading the book again a few weeks ago. I can't think of anyone who could improve on Jeremy Irons casting, and he's too old to do it over. Love, A.N.
