Bright Young Things (2003) - Heading SmallOur young hero, Adam (STEPHEN CAMPBELL MOORE - RSC), needs to get enough money to marry the beautiful Nina (EMILY MORTIMER - Young Adam, 51st State, Love’s Labour’s Lost, Elizabeth). His friends - eccentric, wild, louche and entirely shocking to the older generation, seem one by one to self-destruct, to crash and burn in their endless search for newer and faster sensations.

Their world is that of the very young, wild, party-loving creatures new to gramophone records and the telephone - this is a self-consciously modern generation that cannot keep still for a second. They are known to the press, who follow their every move, as the Bright Young Things.
