The last days of Oscar Wilde - and the ghosts that haunted them - are vividly evoked in Rupert Everett's directorial debut. Wilde's body is ailing and heavy, his mind is spinning, and he survives by falling back on the flamboyant irony and brilliant wit that defined him. As the film travels through his 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. Watch the trailer.
