    I am very fond of Oscar Wilde, he's my favorite writer. I have nothing against Stephen Fry but I can't see Oscar Wilde in him, and his hairstyle makes his head look too big to be Oscar Wilde especially as a young man before his marriage. Apart from that I think he wrote the Picture of Dorian Grey before getting married. We are also not sure about his being seduced at the time and the manner presented in the movie, I just feel that the scene was just inserted in the movie for commercial reasons. I also know from De Profound, in Wilde's own writing that his wife visited him only to break the news of his mother's death, but he never mentioned that they spoke about being together again nor about his nature as a gay. There is also a lack of sympathy for Oscar Wilde the person, how much he suffered after his release. This part is so abrupt, ending the movie with a clumsy happy ending that he and Douglas are back together and writing down the rest in a line. Oscar actually suffered from being alone and living under a fake name and being deprived of seeing his boys and then his tragic illness that caused his death.

    My only problem is that Stephen Fry didn't use an Irish accent.

    I'm glad they rarely ever do the voice over trailers these days.

    Young Jude Law absolutely captures the soul of Bosie. A film worth reliving

    To those who say that Oscar Wilde's marriage was 'fictitious' I suggest you read about his life rather than just watching a film. He was passionately in love with his wife and also sexually attracted to young men. His wife and mother absolutely supported him and his mother warned him to leave England before the trial. Had he done so he would have been able to live out his life with his family. Tragically his wife and mother both died while he was in prison and he was never allowed to see his children again. Lord Alfred Douglas also abandoned him.

    old movie trailers are so weird, they don't need to talk and explain everything
  • Lynn Neumann - Music Composer 2014-08-20 07:32:21
    Judging by the trailer, this film looks incredibly promising.

    As if, Stephen Fry is so out of Jude Law's league.
