Brideshead Revandalized, or Excursion in Reality

By Fr. Paul Mankowski, S.J. (articles ) | May 27, 2003

Evelyn Waugh joins Shakespeare in the gallery of corrected classics:

Hollywood is producing a major film adaptation of the Evelyn Waugh novel Brideshead Revisited. But it is taking a different approach to Granada, which made the hit television series. ... Andrew Davies, noted for the controversy over his adaptation of Tipping The Velvet, with its lesbian themes, is writing the script about the dreaming spires of Oxford and effete upper-class Englishmen.

His script explores how Roman Catholicism destroys their relationship and families.

What a novel approach.
