Rupert Everett as Oscar Wilde in Full UK Trailer for ‘The Happy Prince’

The Happy Prince Trailer

“I can make you happy.” “Yes, you can.” Lionsgate UK has released the trailer for Rupert Everett’s film The Happy Prince, which he not only wrote and directed (and produced), but he also stars in it. Everett plays the infamous, talented writer Oscar Wilde, who was exiled from London at the end of the 1800s after it was discovered that he is gay. He spends most of his time in Paris, drunkenly making a fool of himself. The film’s cast includes Colin Firth, Emily Watson, Colin Morgan, Edwin Thomas, Tom Wilkinson, and Anna Chancellor. This premiered at Sundance and played at Berlinale, but unfortunately it’s an awful film, not only forgettable but the kind of film you want to scrub from your memory as soon as it’s over. So boring and the filmmaking is very bad. I do not recommend this unless you’re a really big Oscar Wilde fan. ›››
