Brideshead Revisited Watch
Antony Andrews was in an adaptation of it, therefore it must be quite good
I keep meaning to have a look for a cheap copy of the film
I also hate it when they do that to books. Directors should do it some artistic integrity rather than worry about how many people it appeals to. The beauty of the book is that it is relatively undiscovered and cherished by those people who have read it.
They are going to put it on the mass market and I'll have to put up with people talking about the film when it bears no resemblance to the book. Waugh would turn in his grave.
Antony Andrews of Brideshead Revisited fame was in the Scarlet Pimpernel 1982 version. This bears very little resemblance plot-wise to the actual novel of the Scarlet Pimpernel, instead nicking a plot from one of its many sequels. Plus it's slightly historically inaccurate.
Oh look! Here I am saying books should be left as they are when it comes to adaptations. Oh I'm such a hypocrite.
