Bright Young Things


UK 2003, 102 minutes
Dir. Stephen Fry
Rating: [M]
Genres: Drama, Comedy / Youth

Topics: Period 1930s.


Aroview: Set among the aspirant youth of 1930s Britain, this fresh satirical comedy marks a promising debut for dir. Fry, even if the drama is sliced a little thin.

Adapted from Evelyn Waugh's early novel "Vile Bodies", it follows the romantic and financial fortunes of an aspiring writer (Moore) and his fiancee (Mortimer), among a set of hedonists, eccentrics and the shallow well-connected. The dazzle of this party-hopping scene is conveyed with considerable fluency, though there are also various graceful cameos and a subtle vein of political comment, matters being capped off with a grand happy ending.
