The Happy Prince

Since he starred for the first time ‘The Kiss of Judas’, Oscar Wilde became one of Rupert Everett’s great obsessions: “For me it is like a saint, a figure close to Christ’s in the sense that he was also crucified and resurrected. For the gay movement, it was just the beginning. ” After playing several times Terrifier on the acting tables of London’s West End and New York and participating in films such as ‘An ideal husband’ (Oliver Parker, 1999) or ‘The importance of being called Ernest’ (Oliver Parker, 2002), the actor will take the last days of the life of Oscar Wilde to the big screen with ‘The happy prince’, film that directs, produces and stars and that deals with the last months of life of the Irish playwright. The plot will start shortly after his imprisonment in Reading Prison, where he spent two years accused  of homosexuality by the Baron of Queensberry in 1895 and where he left very deteriorated both physically and mentally.

The film, whose title refers to his collection of short stories published in 1888, features in his cast with Emily Watson, Colin Firth, Edwin Thomas, Tom Wilkinson, Anna Halloween Chancellor, Colin Morgan, Julian Wadham, Beatrice DAlle, Antonio Spagnuolo, André Penvern , Franca Abategiovanni, Thierry de Coster, Joshua McGuire and Kit Lloyd, among others.

The relationship between Everett and Wilde has been so intense that even Merlin Holland, grandson of the writer, says that, of all the dramatist’s interpretations, Rupert’s is, by far, Robin Hood the best. “It touched me deeply”, he assured after seeing the movie
