Rupert Everett is the not-so happy Oscar Wilde in The Happy Prince: Watch! #trailer

Discover the story of Oscar Wilde’s Lost Years


Rupert Evert is Oscar Wilde in The Happy Prince. Actor turned writer/director has chosen an ironic title for his biopic based on the later years of the writer of The Picture of Dorian Gray, The Importance of Being Earnest, The Happy Prince along with a slew of other not quite so famous works. 

“Be yourself. Everyone else is taken.’’ Oscar Wilde


In his lifetime the oh so quotable Wilde was beset by hate in those much less open times. The film also stars Colin Firth, Emily Watson, Tom Wilkinson, Colin Morgan and Edwin Thomas. 


Rupert Everett IS Oscar Wilde


While the movie opened on June 15th in the UK, here in the US we’ll have to wait for its October 5th. In the meantime, the reviews are coming in, and as the poster blurbs indicate, they’re pretty damn great!

The untold story of the last days in the tragic times of Oscar Wilde, a person who observes his own failure with ironic distance and regards the difficulties that beset his life with detachment and humor.

  1. Oscar Wilde is such a complicated figure in history -- this looks like a deep, layered, view of his life.

    I've been more of a fan ever since I learned that Oscar Wilde visited St. Louis: http://www.joyweesemoll.com/2012/02/26/book-review-stories-for-children-by-oscar-wilde-and-a-wilde-visit-to-st-louis/
