Brideshead Revisited (1981) short review

A really well-told story of nostalgia set in the 1920s-1940s, with Jeremy Irons as the man who becomes emotionally entangled with an aristocratic family.  My only quibble was that Diana Quick didn’t seem to suit the role of Julia, but that was more than made up for by beautiful sets, lovely costumes, and a mini-series that takes its time telling the story.
