Plot: "Some time in the past when things were much as they are now, only more so..." A satirical comedy as well as a love story, Bright Young Things, marks the directorial debut of actor and writer Stephen Fry. "Bright Young Things," says Fry, "is a period film shot with modern pace and cinematography. It deals with fame, sexual scandal, greed, night-clubbing and the frantic glamour of youth."

While the central plot of Bright Young Things is a romance, it is also a highly topical social comedy that shows a conservative older generation failing to understand the club-culture, music, dance, and frenetic pace of its children. Modern society at its most decadent and colourful is fully on display as is the popular media fuelled by gossip columnists and paparazzi who dominate a tabloid press propelled by rumour and scandal.

With a screenplay adapted by Stephen Fry from the classic novel Vile Bodies by Evelyn Waugh, the film boasts an outstanding cast including Stephen Cambell Moore, Emily Mortimer, Fenella Woolgar, James McAvoy, Michael Sheen and Guy Henry as the 'Bright Young Things', alongside a distinguished ensemble line-up that includes Dan Aykroyd, Jim Broadbent, Simon Callow, Stockard Channing, Richard E. Grant, Julia McKenzie, Sir John Mills, Peter O'Toole, Bill Paterson, Imelda
