Wilde

This biographical tale of Oscar Wilde, poet, playwright and genius, chronicles his fascinating life during the years 1882 until 1897. The self-realisation of his homosexuality caused him enormous torment as he juggled marriage, fatherhood and responsibility with his obsessive love for Bosie (Lord Alfred Douglas). Superb performances by Stephen Fry, Jude Law and Vanessa Redgrave.
