    Understanding Brideshead and its Philosophy

    In this period piece, we meet a young bright college student, Charles Ryder(Matthew Goode) spending his first years at the infamous Oxford University.While there we learn about his sad past and cold father who turns him away. But as he attends school, he is soon seduced by the eccentric Sebatian Flyte(Ben Whishaw,). The men become friends and he takes Charles to his breath taking home in the British countryside, after learing about Sebatisan"s sexuality and the love for him that he begins to feel after spending time with him. After meeting his family that dissaproves of his sexuality and shuns him for it.Soon, Charles becomes most intrigued by not only the captivating manner they have in their possession, but by the mysterious Julia(Haley Atwell), Sebatians sister.Charles stays with them for a period of time after school ends and is asked to leave by the abrasive Mrs.Flyte(Emma Thompson)explaining to him that Sebatian,an alcoholic needed a better influence and a change in life where he would be getting therapy for his alcoholism.This movie takes you also to Italy where, Sebatian,Julia,Brydlie,and Cordelia Flyte's father(Michael Gambon) resides with his new Italian bride.It is there where Charles reveals his feelings for Julia,even though not returned right away. This movie takes you from the early 1920's to the start of World War 1, at the end Charles unexpectedly meets Julia again after all those years.,but the ending is not what you would think!!<BR/>This movie is for someone who has ever felt left out in the cold without much and given a whole new world of diplays a family discrimination and how favortism was prominent and people were less excepting of their own children.A wonderful period drama that fills the highs and lows and doesn't leave any gaps open.
