How the flying f*ck did I learn about this only yesterday?
a fan:
I am very fond of Oscar Wilde, he's my favorite writer. I have nothing against Stephen Fry but I can't see Oscar Wilde in him, and his hairstyle makes his head look too big to be Oscar Wilde especially as a young man before his marriage. Apart from that I think he wrote the Picture of Dorian Grey before getting married. We are also not sure about his being seduced at the time and the manner presented in the movie, I just feel that the scene was just inserted in the movie for commercial reasons. I also know from De Profound, in Wilde's own writing that his wife visited him only to break the news of his mother's death, but he never mentioned that they spoke about being together again nor about his nature as a gay. There is also a lack of sympathy for Oscar Wilde the person, how much he suffered after his release. This part is so abrupt, ending the movie with a clumsy happy ending that he and Douglas are back together and writing down the rest in a line. Oscar actually suffered from being alone and living under a fake name and being deprived of seeing his boys and then his tragic illness that caused his death.

I love Stephen Fry but this film was shite.
He did love his wife at one point. He was pretty straight until he met Robbie Ross. His attraction to women faded over time. I'm going to introduce you to a potentially groundbreaking concept: sexual fluidity.
Fry was miscast; he looks a bit like Wilde but his performance is too mild mannered and timid; he’s not a trained actor like Daniel day Lewis who should have played the role with the nuance it deserved. Fry is playing himself, his own persona: he’s not even trying to interpret the role in the way an actor should. Jude Law does an exceptional job as Bosie but he shouldn’t have had to carry the film on his own talent... he deserved a formidable costar... and that’s why the film is not regarded as a classic.

Stephen Fry was quite good in this, unlike most biographies of quotable people, it is not made up of Wilde being witty and quotable.
