Rupert Everett Is Oscar Wilde In ‘The Happy Prince’ Trailer



Already receiving critical acclaim on the festival circuit at Sundance, Berlin and BFI Flare in London.

Lionsgate have released an emotionally-charged trailer for ‘The Happy Prince’, starring and directed by Rupert Everett as it delves into the tragic final days of beloved poet Oscar Wilde, who was shamefully imprisoned for being gay.

Boasting a quality ensemble that includes Colin Firth, Emily Watson, Colin Morgan and Tom Wilkinson. The film is released on 15th June.

‘In a cheap Parisian hotel room Oscar Wilde lies on his death bed and the past floods back, transporting 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? The lover imprisoned and freed, yet still running towards ruin in the final chapter of his life? Under the microscope of death he reviews the failed attempt to reconcile with his long suffering wife Constance, the ensuing reprisal of his fatal love affair with Lord Alfred Douglas and the warmth and devotion of Robbie Ross who tried and failed to save him from himself. From Dieppe to Naples to Paris freedom is elusive and Oscar is a penniless vagabond, always moving on, shunned by his old acquaintance, but revered by a strange group of outlaws and urchins to whom he tells the old stories – his incomparable wit still sharp. THE HAPPY PRINCE is a portrait of the dark side of a genius who lived and died for love in the last days of the nineteenth century.’
