Sequestered at a remote seaside hotel in France, a buoyant Oscar Wilde (Rupert Everett) is soon restlessly traversing Europe under assumed names beset by familiar, warring impulses: to reunite with his estranged wife (Emily Watson) or his former lover whose past provocations brought Wilde to ruin. Fading health, dwindling funds, and still more betrayals await Wilde who relentlessly seeks love and creative outlets in various taverns and alleyways. Everett shines bright, evoking the spirit of the once celebrated fallen genius who finds divine light even in the darkest corners of life.
