The untold story of the last days in the tragic times of Oscar Wilde, a person who observes his own failure with ironic distance and regards the difficulties that beset his life with detachment and humor. The film is a deeply felt, tremendously acted tribute to courage.

‘The Happy Prince’ is evidently a passion project for Rupert Everett, who writes, directs and stars. But this is not the Oscar Wilde of other biopics, basking in the fame of the London stage, a vision in velvet dispensing witticisms like papal benedictions. This is a Wilde broken by Reading gaol, constantly begging for money but unable to hold onto it. “Like dear St Francis of Assisi,” he complains, “I am wedded to poverty. But in my case the marriage is not a happy one.” Raddled, rouged and raging against the world (but often tender, too), Everett’s Wilde is an extraordinary achievement - it is surely the best thing he has done as an actor.
