This Friday – Oscar Wilde

The Happy Prince

The last days of Oscar Wilde

In a cheap Parisian hotel room Oscar Wilde (Rupert Everett) lies on his death bed. The past floods back, taking him to other times and places. He reviews the failed attempt to reconcile with his long suffering wife Constance, the ensuing reprisals of his fatal love affair with Lord Alfred Douglas and the warmth and devotion of Robbie Ross (Colin Firth), who tried and failed to save him from himself. As Wilde relives his travels through England, France and Italy, the transience of lust is laid bare and the true riches of love revealed.
