Stephen Fry, the most famously witty man in Britain, gets to play Oscar Wilde, his equivalent a hundred years ago. The difference is that being a gay man with a clever comment for every occasion was rather more dangerous then. This film covers Wilde's disastrous relationship with Lord Alfred Douglas, whose father ruined the writer in a pair of famous court cases. Fry is perfectly cast as Wilde, a complicated man who loved his wife and children at the same time as he was scandalising London with Lord Alfred.
Made in 1961, when homosexuality was still illegal in Britain, this drama sees a gay lawyer fighting against a blackmailer targeting gay London men.
