A first official look at The Happy Prince, the upcoming period drama movie written and directed by Rupert Everett and starring Colin Firth, Emily Watson, Colin Morgan, Edwin Thomas, and Rupert Everett:
“The last days of Oscar Wilde—and the ghosts that haunted them—are vividly evoked in Rupert Everett’s directorial debut, The Happy Prince. Everett gives a career-best performance as Wilde, physically and emotionally embodying the literary genius as he lives out his last days in exile in Europe. His body ailing and heavy, his mind spinning, he survives by falling back on the flamboyant irony and brilliant wit that defined him. As the film travels through Wilde’s final act and journeys through England, France and Italy, desire and loyalty face off, the transience of lust is laid bare, and the true riches of love are revealed.”
Well he doesn’t look that happy…
The film has yet to get an official US release date, but it will be released on May 24, 2018 in Germany.
