Brian Gilbert United Kingdom, 1997

Caden Cotard's rating of the film Wilde

A fairly conventional biopic saved by multiple brilliant performances (especially by Fry and Sheen). Unfortunately, the movie (and its writer) can't live up to Wilde himself, but that doesn't matter. Fry captures him so perfectly that you may forget you're watching a movie. And then you realize you are, once again, once Ioan Gruffudd starts to try to act.
