Forget E.T, this is one sad movie.
31 October 1999 | by (New Zealand) – See all my reviews

I remember seeing this film for the first time and missing the end because I was crying so much. Pretty embarrassing for a 10 year old boy. After this, I couldn't see what all the fuss was about that little wrinkled alien and his mate Elliot. The Happy Prince tells the story of a magnificent Golden Statue and his efforts to make the world a better place. Like Oscar Wilde's other great tear jerker, The Selfish Giant, it explores the nature of sacrifice and friendship. If you get the chance, devour this movie, it is a true great. Just make sure you bring a childlike view of the world. And Kleenex. Lots of Kleenex
