Loosely based on an Evelyn Waugh novel, Bright Young Things explores the culture of affluence, jazz, and cultural transformations in interwar England. A group of bohemian artists, journalists, and the idle rich seek out sexual experiences, money-making ventures, and luxurious parties in blissful ignorance.
