Synopsis

Dramatisation of the fall from grace of author Oscar Wilde. Wilde (Stephen Fry) returns from a successful 1882 lecture tour of America to wed Constance Lloyd (Jennifer Ehle). However, he admits to himself that he is really attracted to men, and embarks on an affair with Lord Alfred Douglas (Jude Law), known as 'Bosie'. Although winning critical success with 'The Picture of Dorian Gray', Wilde's homosexuality looks set to land him in hot water with strict Victorian society.
