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.
Colin Firth and Rupert Everett previously appeared together in Oscar Wilde's The Importance of Being Earnest (2002) as well as Another Country (1984), St. Trinian's (2007), St Trinian's 2: The Legend of Fritton's Gold (2009) and Shakespeare in Love (1998) in which Rupert Everett made an uncredited appearance as Christopher Marlowe.
All I'm saying, Reggie, dear, is I have lived in the grip of vice and pleasure. It was wrong and I have paid. Perhaps the slate is wiped clean, perhaps it is not, who knows? At any rate, I am now ready to return to life.
Reggie Turner (1870.6.2-1938) played by 48 year old Firth.
During the end credits Oscar Wilde is heard and seen singing a French song in a cafe. Then there are flashbacks of audiences applauding his works in a theatre.
