Blackmail and political corruption are the juicy, central themes of this lavish take on Oscar Wilde's much-filmed 1895 stage play. Beautifully acted and full of Wilde's customary waspish wit, the Technicolor social satire sees a prominent Victorian politician's flawless reputation jeopardised by his youthful indiscretions. Cornered by the unscrupulous Mrs Cheveley, Sir Robert Chiltern is warned that unless he supports a shady venture she's involved in, she'll blab secrets about his past that could destroy his career and marriage. Too scared to say no, Chiltern runs to his best friend to help sort out the mess. But Mrs Cheveley is not going away quietly.

What our educators say

"We are currently screening The Wizard of Oz, profound film that it is, and the last film Wall-E. It's been rewarding observing the KS1 6 year olds run the gamut of emotions from wonder to sadness to joy. "
