What the Critics say

Diane de Beer
|Chicago Sunday Times|
Roger Ebert A good, sound example of the British period drama; mid-range Merchant-Ivory, you could say.
Adam Nayman Brideshead Revisited is handsomely produced and extremely well-acted.
James Berardinelli Brideshead Revisited is a worthy, although not superior, motion picture.
C. Fuchs Needing more time likely best suited for the mini-series or original novel form.
Tomatometer Suspenseful and beautifully mounted, Brideshead Revisited does an able job condensing Evelyn Waugh’s novel.
