About this event

Once England’s most celebrated author, Oscar Wilde is now exiled to Naples and Paris following his release from prison for “gross indecency”. In decline, he recalls both his glory days and the beginning of his downfall.

Following the 50-year anniversary of its decriminalisation The Happy Prince is a timely reminder of the hypocrisy with which society then treated homosexuality. Rupert Everett wrote, directs and stars in this superior biopic delivering a magnificent performance as Wilde, a man compromised but uncompromising.

“This film is a deeply felt, tremendously acted tribute to courage.”

★★ Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
