Join the Washington DC Sunday Night Film Club this Sunday, Jul 27th at 6:45 pm for Brideshead Revisited at the Landmark E Street Cinema . Look for Brian wearing an Avenue Q t-shirt in the theatre lobby about 15 minutes before the film. As always, after the film we will descend on a local establishment for dinner/drinks/discussion.
Evelyn Waughs heartbreaking romantic epic tells an evocative story of forbidden love and the loss of innocence in the pre-WWII era. Charles Ryder (Matthew Goode) becomes entranced with the noble Marchmain family, first through the charming and provocative Sebastian Flyte (Ben Whishaw), and then his sophisticated sister, Julia (Hayley Atwell). The rise and fall of Charles infatuations reflect the decline of a decadent era in England between the wars. Co-starring Michael Gambon, Greta Scacchi and Emma Thompson as Lady Marchmain. Directed by Julian Jarrold (Becoming Jane).
