"He just doesn't know it yet."


  • Director: Oliver Parker
  • Genre: Drama, Comedy, Romance
  • Studio: Miramax
  • Duration: 120 Mins

This tale of political intrigue based on Oscar Wilde's 1895 comedy of manners may no longer be a scandalous cause célèbre, yet this amusing diversion retains its power to disconcert. While it shares the wit and wisdom of Alexander Korda's 1947 version, writer/director Oliver Parker's adaptation has the additional advantage of impeccable casting. Rupert Everett is the standout here as philandering man-about-town Arthur Goring, though Cate Blanchett, Minnie Driver, Julianne Moore and Jeremy Northam - as the married government minister who requires Everett's aid against a scheming blackmailer - also give splendid performances. It's visually spot on, too, even if Parker's energetic opening out of the action occasionally seems a little excessive.
