A film by Rupert Everett based on the life of Oscar Wilde

“Moving, unforgettable, ravishing..a gutsy tour de force.” – Metro
Paris. Oscar Wilde is in his forties, penniless, in poor health and still reeling after being imprisoned in England for this love affair with Lord Alfred ‘Bossie’ Douglas. Now an outcast, Wilde swings between grief and a determination to grasp whatever pleasure and beauty he can from the time he has left.
Rupert Everett (My Best Friend’s Wedding) highlights Wilde’s renowned waspish humour and wit in this intelligent and moving masterpiece. Ably supported by Colin Firth (The King’s Speech) and Emily Watson (The Book Thief) this is a must-see for thespians and fans of one of the most famous and misunderstood men in London.
