THE IM­POR­TANCE OF BE­ING OS­CAR

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - TV Guide - - THE WEEK’S TOP SHOWS -

IF you haven’t read about the life of Os­car Wilde, this docudrama gets you up to speed. Fans from ac­tor Stephen Fry (pic­tured), through to his lat­est bi­og­ra­pher Matthew Stur­gis, dis­cuss his life, while ac­tors per­form ex­cerpts from his works. The film tends to prove that famed piece of Wildean wis­dom “life im­i­tates art far more than art im­i­tates life”. The doco is fol­lowed by a screen­ing of one of his finest plays, An Ideal Hus­band.
