The Happy Prince
AroView: Rupert Everett directs and stars in this passionate evocation of Oscar Wilde’s final years. After being imprisoned for his love affair with Lord Alfred Bosie Douglas, Wilde is struggling on the streets of Paris, using his characteristic flamboyance and extraordinary wit to get by.
Alongside Colin Firth, Emily Watson and Colin Morgan, Everett gives a career-best performance, physically and emotionally embodying the literary genius as he lives out his last days in exile in Europe.
“Everett is near-flawless, and his film is a superb showcase for an actor whose celebrity has at times overshadowed his talent.” ~ Andrew Lowry, Empire.
