Synopsis

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.
