As is my custom with favorite actors or actresses, I select titles at times in which they have contributed. This time it was Peter Egan. Saw him first in "Lillie" with Francesca Annis, and it looks like there's nothing comparable to that marvelous part and portrayal as Oscar Wilde. I heartily agree with the reviewer who warns one off this dull-as-ditch-water vehicle. In my experience, one can satisfy curiosity and interest in a poor adaptation if one has enjoyed the author and the source material. I have managed to at least watch with interest mediocre films of favorite authors just to see what they did with it, however just that one time. Nothing here invites a re-visit of this series.
