Simply brilliant.
1 December 2006 | by paulcreedenSee all my reviews

This film is a 'must see' for anyone literate and gay, lesbian, transgendered, bisexual, polysexual, black, white, brown, yellow, or otherwise feeling the least bit like the world needs to be a gentler, better place. If you love Oscar Wilde's work (and who doesn't), you will be moved, as well as entertained, by the orchestration of this tribute by famous, beautiful and articulate actors, musicians, producers, directors, writers, singers, dancers, painters, politicians. Bill Hughes, who shares Oscar Wilde's birthday, October 16, set out to honor the great man on his 150th birthday. By joining hands with public television in Britain, Ireland, Ausralia and the United States, and Amnesty International (thanks to Bono of U2), Bill Hughes and co-produce Bernadine Carraher were able to shoot international and diverse talent in four locations. It is one of the best and most stimulating ensemble pieces of its kind, in my opinion.
