Official selection of the Sundance and Los Angeles Film Festivals, The Happy Prince, arrives on Blu-Ray, DVD and Digital from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment. The film—written and directed by and starring Golden Globe and BAFTA nominee Rupert Everett (My Best Friend’s Wedding)—chronicles the heartbreaking final days of celebrated writer and legendary wit Oscar Wilde. The Happy Prince features an acclaimed supporting cast including Academy Award and Golden Globe winner Colin Firth (The King’s Speech), Colin Morgan (Legend), Edwin Thomas (TV’s Inspector Lewis), Golden Globe and Academy Award nominee Emily Watson (Breaking The Waves) and Academy Award nominee and Emmy winner Tom Wilkinson (In the Bedroom, TV’s “John Adams”).
In a cheap Parisian hotel, Oscar Wilde lies on his deathbed and recalls his past with wit and irony. Was he once the most famous man in London? He reviews the failed attempt to reconcile with his long-suffering wife, the ensuing reprisal of his love affair with Lord Alfred Douglas and the devotion of Robbie Ross, who tried and failed to save him from himself. From Dieppe to Naples to Paris, Oscar is a penniless vagabond, shunned by his old acquaintances, but still revered by a strange group of outlaws to whom he tells the old stories – his incomparable talent still sharp.
