ABOUT THE HAPPY PRINCE
Dir. Rupert Everett; UK; 2018; 105 min; Northwest Premiere

“To deny one’s own experiences is to put a lie into the lips of one’s own life,” wrote Oscar Wilde from his prison cell, after being convicted of sodomy and “gross indecency” and falling from grace in London’s haughty literary circles.

The Happy Prince focuses on the last years of the life of the infamous poet, author, and playwright (Dorian Grey, The Importance of Being Earnest). Now suffering from the effects of two years of hard labor, poverty-stricken, and alienated from his wife Constance (Emma Watson) and children, Wilde (Rupert Everett, who also directed) finds his way back to his playboy love Lord Alfred Douglas, better known as Bosie (Colin Morgan); his devoted former lover Robbie (Edwin Thomas); and loyal friend Reggie (Colin Firth). Traveling from Dieppe to Naples to Paris, Wilde survives thanks to his wit and a bohemian, streetwise underground he entertains with panache. Still getting into trouble in his final days, Wilde is depicted with the affection and dark tragedy fitting of the gay king of nineteenth-century English literature.
