After picking up Brideshead Revisited this weekend at the local Redbox, I thought I was in for a more typical period flick. My wife is a big fan of Emma Thompson ever since her appearance in that Jane Austen classic, Sense & Sensibility. This particular version is a 2008 version of the book by Evelyn Waugh (a Briton who converted to Catholicism in the 1930’s after being an agnostic). A simple viewing of the movie could make you wonder if the movie is actually antagonistic towards faith in Christianity. The protagonist is an agnostic and the Catholic family he gets involved with is certainly messed up. There aren’t simple answers, nor characters with simple motivations. And it’s perhaps for that reason that I find myself continuing to think about some of its themes.
