Storyline

Nick Guest comes to London to live with his college friend's family, the Feddens. A short stay becomes permanent, and Nick positions himself in the family's plentiful lives of parties and politics during the Thatcher years. Over the course of three episodes spanning four years in the mid-eighties, we follow Nick's two homosexual love affairs in a time of promiscuity and carelessness, until the AIDS crisis and a bout of scandal threaten life as he has come to know it. Written by Peter Brandt Nielsen

what's with the Great Gatsby?
11 October 2012 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

This is clearly an "omage" to Brideshead Revisited . . . which is also clearly the reason such ludicrous pap won the Booker Prize - always won by either "black" authors or pooftas so we all know that the English are really understanding people and better than all the others etc in the world . . . what is everyone talking about Gatsby for? It has nothing whatever to do with Gatsby? In any way whatever? . . . ???

Like everything you ever see these days this production is really beautifully done, but what for? . . .

This is beautiful crap from beginning to end. I can't believe the cliché after cliché, the weak unbelievable nonsense that we are meant to weep over? We are meant to weep over a man discovering that his adoptive father has a mistress when we have seen his boyfriend, who he thinks is the most beautiful man he has ever seen (!), f*** another man in front of him? Seriously we are meant to weep - they have that "dead baby" music playing . . . blah blah it's endless I'm getting angry now!

Crap as an "omage" . . . well maybe THAT is significant? With Post-Modernism you never know?
