I watched this film Wilde years ago. I did not know who Oscar Wilde was before this, and not that I am trying to remember him more since. I am shallow. Look and skin matter.

However, since that Oscar Wilde's life has an important impact on the gay community, I guess I should talk a little about this gay film. Wilde produced several writings - where the one that got him into trouble of The Picture of Dorian Gray. Sympathetic straights would define this book as one that talked about his obsession with the look of a young guy as someone he wished to be, while the gays knew it was pure obsession.

The Story of the First Modern ManStephen Fry (Oscar Wilde) did an outstanding performance but the shallow me remembers only one thing. The nude performance of the fine, young Jude Law (Bosie), as the young guy who got Wilde into trouble.

By the way, if you don't blink your eyes at the beginning of the show, you will see Orlando Bloom acting as a street hustler. Yes, Orlando Bloom!
