A well-acted and staged biography of the Irish writer, Oscar Wilde, who is now more remembered for his acerbic one-liners than his whole works and life. The movie is also a powerful reminder that just 100 years ago men were tried and sentenced for being gay. It is impossible to reduce a life like Wilde's to a movie-length story. By honing in the later years of his life, much was told without dramatization. THe costumes and stage sets were very well done, the acting was impeccable and Wilde's complicated nature deserves more screen time in more movies. Nearly 120 years ago, Wilde's Dorian Gray captured vampiric narcissism with panache. His work and life remains vital even now. I was left with questions and wanting more and that is exactly how Wilde would have written his life. Or, in his own words: "The truth is rarely pure and never simple."

I saw this film when it was released and I was amazed that it was ignored when awards season rolled around. The performances in this film are first rate and the film is terrific. This is a must have for any serious film fanatic such as myself who appreciates high quality LGBTQ cinema!
