  Setting aside their flair and flourish, the excessive lifestyles of the hedonistic 1930s Londoners who populate "Bright Young Things" portend a less-than-bright future for all. But there's no denying the luster of this first feature film written and directed by dryly-droll British actor/scribe Stephen Fry (TV's "Jeeves & Wooster"). With a crackling script and an expressive ensemble cast swinging from saucy to spiteful and from bruised to brutal, "Bright Young Things" is an exceptional adaptation of Evelyn Waugh's biting comic novel Vile Bodies. Emily Mortimer, as upwardly mobile party-girl Nina, is an entrancing object of desire. Although many covet Nina, her favorite escort is struggling novelist Adam (Stephen Campbell Moore). He's vainly trying to keep pace with the well-heeled crowd — and finance his romantic overtures toward Nina — by writing a gossip column for a sleazy London tabloid published by a brash Canadian tycoon (Dan Aykroyd). Jim Broadbent as a drunken army major, Stockard Channing as a social-climbing evangelist, and the peerless Peter O'Toole as Nina's daffy titled father are among the actors who illuminate "Bright Young Things." Fry skillfully and satirically summons up a decadent world where betrayals, public humiliation and the promise of quick cash are routine. A touch of anachronistic music is the only miscue in the entire comedy of manners and morals.
