“Dead relly… dead relly… dead relly’s teddy,” drawls Felix Catton (Jacob Elordi), pointing out the portraits of his ancestors hanging in his family’s country estate. The last of these catches the eye of his desperately common visiting friend Oliver Quick (Barry Keoghan) – and surely also any viewers for whom Evelyn Waugh’s Brideshead Revisited, with the flamboyant Sebastian Flyte and his beloved Aloysius tucked under his arm, was a formative read.
A judge overseeing Donald Trump’s civil fraud trial pounded his fists in frustration with the former U.S. president’s lawyers on Wednesday for what he described as redundant and "ridiculous" cross-examination of a witness.
