“The Happy Prince is a richly detailed and deeply affecting look at the final days of Oscar Wilde... Exiled from his London home after being released from prison for a conviction of ‘gross indecency,’ the demoralized writer - separated from his wife and sons - is eking out an existence in France and Italy with the help of friends and former lovers, including the fatally glamorous Alfred Bosie Douglas. Everett skilfully mixes past and present, contrasting the great wit in his prime with poignant, but never sentimental, scenes of hardship and struggle.” - Glenn Sumi, Now Magazine. “Dreamy, inventive and beautifully crafted.” - The L.A. Times. “Award-caliber acting... A heartfelt salute to Wilde from an actor and filmmaker who was born to play him.” - Rolling Stone
