As a young Oxonian, Jeremy (The French Lieutenant's Woman) Irons becomes infatuated with aristocratic classmate Anthony (Danger UXB) Andrews in this dazzling 11-part British series (also starring Laurence Olivier). A smash in England, the adaptation of Evelyn Waugh's 1945 novel is a fascinating story of love, Catholicism and upper-class decay.
