“For while this may be a film about how Wilde's life -- and genius -- were cruelly curtailed by the stigma of his homosexuality, it's also about lives lived, enduring friendships and the relentless passing of time.” Matthew Bond, The Mail.
Rupert Everett, Colin Firth, and Emily Watson star in the untold story of the last days of Oscar Wilde, a man who observed his own failure with ironic distance and regarded the difficulties that beset his life with detachment and humor.
