Brilliant, egocentric and completely unique, Oscar Wilde (Stephen Fry) defied convention on almost every level. While coming to terms with his newfound sexual identity, he also experienced his most creative period, resulting in some of his best-known works. As his literary career flourished, the self-realization of his homosexuality caused Wilde enormous torment as he juggled marriage, fatherhoodand responsibility with his obsessive love for Lord Alfred Douglas (Jude Law). It is this passionate and stormy relationship which consumed and ultimately destroyed him. Featuring a brilliant supporting cast including Jennifer Ehle, Academy Award(r)-Winner Vanessa Redgrave and Tom Wilkinson as Wilde's chief adversary, the Marquis of Queensbury.
