I guess I should have been more aware of what I was getting into. Three very depressing movies. Heartbreakingly depressing. If you've ever been madly in love with someone you could never be with, if you've never felt love as a child, if you never felt acceptance from your parents or if you've ever loved someone more than they could ever feel for you, then grab a large box of tissues, some aspirin and this three pack of DVDs. Just don't expect any happy endings. Not in these films. In addition, if you are accustomed to subtitles and\/or closed captioning, be warned that these movies do not have them. And if you are easily offended by such things, Brideshead Revisited may not be for you: the recap talks of Charles' affections for Sebastian's sister, but never mentions Sebastian's affections for Charles and that is a big part of the story.
