I'm not convinced ...

... Waugh's 'Brideshead' Adapted for the Big Screen. (Hat tip, Paul Davis.)

Waugh wrote "Brideshead" to illustrate the grace of God set against the complexities of human relationships and the hold Catholicism can still exert on those whose faith has lapsed. But Mr. Davies said he envisaged making a tragic film that shows the unfavorable impact of religion on many people's lives — "as much as the period when the book was written, although perhaps in different ways."

In other words, the theme of the film has nothing to do with the theme of Waugh's novel. Screw that.
