The Happy Prince 15

Fri 22 Jun – Thu 5 Jul


Synopsis

Rupert Everett directs and stars in this deeply moving biopic about the latter years of Oscar Wilde.

Playwright, novelist and poet Oscar Wilde was at the height of fame in the late 19th Century, but after being exposed as a homosexual he was imprisoned and sentenced to two year’s hard labour.

Set in his final impoverished days in Paris the film flashes back to the years after Wilde’s release: his exile in France, the time spent with his lover Bosie Douglas in Rouen and Naples, and the efforts of his decreasing circle of friends to help his health and happiness.

Everett gives an astonishing performance, capturing the wit, the largesse, and the soul of the great wordsmith; the esteemed supporting cast includes Edwin Thomas, Emily Watson and Colin Firth.

Dir: Rupert Everett
