A compelling film

A must see for mature audiences who are aware of Oscar Wilde’s stature as literary figure, admire his work, and abhor the tragic twists and turns he had to endure in his lifetime, during the merciless Victorian era. Beautifully written screen play, exquisite acting, and brilliant directing. Rupert Everett: sheer genius. Under no circumstances, however, should this film be watched by teens between ages 14-17, unless they are emotionally mature for their age and watch it along with well informed family members willing to discuss the film with them and intellectually and emotionally able to confront the many questions teenagers may pose in the process.
