“A solid biopic, with fine performances.”
   Alex von Tunzelmann, The Guardian

“Mr. Fry’s warmly sympathetic performance finds the gentleness beneath the wit. He conveys the sense of a man at the mercy of forces he cannot control, not least of them his own brittle genius.”
Janet Maslin, The New York Times

“Fry is utterly convincing. He speaks the witty lines as if he invented them and manages to square Wilde’s weakness and arrogance with his immense generosity of spirit”
TimeOut London

Reviews

  1. :

    This film gave amazingly accurate insight into the life of a great Irish literary Oscar Wilde Indeed, many a speech by Stephen Fry has been quoted word for word from the actual trial monologues, and the uncanny resemblance of Fry to Wilde himself is astounding.
    This Wilde is torn between what is accepted love (his wife, and children), and the ‘love that dare not speak its name’ (primarily his destructive relationship with the needy, selfish and petulant Lord Alfred Douglas, played here by Jude Law in the role which brought him to world attention). We see his charm and conviction when creating his plays or amusing friends, we also see his weaker side and why he was the cause of his own eventual arrest and imprisonment, we see how prison changed him and – as he wrote himself in De Profundis – broke his spirit and his health.
