Cos­tume drama that smoul­ders

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - News -

As re­ported last week, a new ver­sion of Brideshead Re­vis­ited, Eve­lyn Waugh’s de­li­cious com­bi­na­tion of snob­bery and sen­ti­men­tal­ity, will be mak­ing its way to us be­fore the end of the year. The film has re­ceived some de­cent re­views on re­lease in the US, but the ap­palling trailer is al­ready be­com­ing some­thing of a mi­nor cult. Scored with clang­ing elec­tric gui­tars and edited with fe­ro­cious im­pa­tience, the promo sug­gests – wrongly, we are sure – that the film is a com­bi­na­tion of Ba­sic In­stinct and Dan­ger­ous Li­aisons. Check it out at www.brides head­revis­ited-the­movie.com.
