Bright Young Things: A fool and his money. In the 1930s, Adam Fenwick-Symes is part of the English idle class, wanting to marry the flighty Nina Blount. He's a novelist with a hundred-pound advance for a manuscript confiscated by English customs. He spends the next several years trying to get money and to set a wedding date: he trades in gossip, wins money on wagers then gives it to a drunken major who's suggested he bet on a horse in an upcoming race. Adam tries to get the money back, but can't find the major. Meanwhile, Nina needs security, friends drink too much, and general unhappiness spoils the party. Then war breaks out. Is Adam's bright youth dimming with the fall of an empire?

After watching this film, I want to read the book Vile Bodies by Evelyn Waugh. I loved this film. Although, I believe Stephen Fry can do no wrong.

Brilliant!! It got better as it went. After watching Glamours.Golden.Age.Ep02 I had to see the movie about these decadent Bright Young People. 10/10 I will watch it again.

A Happy Ending, fulfilled love, and the coming of Adult responsibility among the pre/post World War II idle rich party crowd and their "hangers on". As good an ending "as money can buy", (pun intended). This movie brings out the romantic side of everyone who watches it. An eye opener on the way society was in England in that era. Good character development, great actor/acresses(s) and well tied together conclusion. I give it a 4/5.
