How on Earth do you compress Brideshead Revisited down into two hours (or even less)? It's a truly great novel so I'd certainly be up for seeing it on screen, but ... that'll be a very difficult adaptation job for a screenwriter. And in the comments we've already seen from those behind this future work, I'm nervous we might run into some Mysteries of Pittsburgh problems.
With its theme of love across a religious divide Brideshead is very relevant to our time.
Now the book is about religion, no question, but is it really about "love across a religious divide"? That seems about 100 times more minor than the book as whole.Posted by armand at February 1, 2007 01:33 PM | TrackBack | Posted to Movies
