Storyline

Sir Robert Chiltern is a successful Government minister, well-off and with a loving wife. All this is threatened when Mrs Cheveley appears in London with damning evidence of a past misdeed. Sir Robert turns for help to his friend Lord Goring, an apparently idle philanderer and the despair of his father. Goring knows the lady of old, and, for him, takes the whole thing pretty seriously. Written by Jeremy Perkins {J-26}

25 September 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I adored this film and would recommend it to anyone. If you like good acting, great costumes and scenery well then this is the film for you. The acting is excellent and you almost forget that you are watching actors. This film is a great "Whos who" in British acting. The beginning of the film will make you want to see the whole thing. The first person we see is Jeremy Brett and he is perfect in the role of Lord Goring he is handsome, witty and charming. If you like Oscar Wilde I recommend you also watch "The Picture of Dorian Gray" in which Jeremy Brett also appears as the painter Basil Hallward. The film is the most accurate portrayal of any Oscar Wilde films I have ever seen.
