In a cheap Parisian hotel room, Oscar Wilde lies on his death bed, as the past floods back to him, taking him to other times and places. Was he once the most famous man in London? The artist, crucified by a society that once worshiped him?

Travelling through Wilde's final act, and journeys through England, France and Italy, the transience of lust is laid bare and the true riches of love are revealed.

Writer/Director/Star Rupert Everett is absolutely breathtaking in this true passion project that took decades to bring to the big screen. Trust us - it was definitely worth the wait.
