Very well filmed, poetic and realistic, a perfect view on the queer side of Oscar. I was really thrilled.

The Synopsis for The Happy Prince (2018) 720p
In a cheap Parisian hotel room Oscar Wilde lies on his death bed. The past floods back, taking him to other times and places. Was he once the most famous man in London? The artist crucified by a society that once worshipped him? Under the microscope of death he reviews the failed attempt to reconcile with his long suffering wife Constance, the ensuing reprisal of his fatal love affair with Lord Alfred Douglas and the warmth and devotion of Robbie Ross, who tried and failed to save him from himself. Travelling through Wilde's final act and journeys through England, France and Italy, the transience of lust is laid bare and the true riches of love are revealed. It is a portrait of the dark side of a genius who lived and died for love.

The untold story of the last days in the tragic times of Oscar Wilde, a person who observes his own failure with ironic distance and regards the difficulties that beset his life with detachment and humor. Rupert Everett's 'The Happy Prince' is another very huge disappointment and a movie that did not suprise me at all plus really disappointed that Colin Firth and Tom Wilkinson even agreed to appear on this catastrophy and i'm afraid that the bad movies this year have no stopping what so ever and it might even be worse than last year's big and low budgets.
There are many good features to this film. Firstly it presents Wilde as the record show he was, not as a martyr, which has become the mythology about Wilde. His pain, destitution and betrayals are almost like the story of a martyr but one with a highly developed narcissistic personality.
Additionally, Wilde's own work is not discussed as more than it is, mostly entertainment. Typically, because of Wilde's conviction, his work has been reinterpreted to have political intentions, despite his play 'A Woman of No Importance', being surely one of the worst plays written by a professional writer. The other strong feature is the nonlinear script. The post-prison exile is told and reflected on through the glory years which counterpoint with the bitter ending. This works very well in mapping Wilde's journey and all that he lost. The shifts in the films between Wilde's destitution and the radiance of a beach and Naples are quite stark, and really show the turmoil in Wilde's life. Threading 'The Happy Prince' through all the debris of a life is adroit.
There is also an ambience of a 1940's film here. It could be in the photography and in some of the sequences, in the bars and cabarets seem like a Fritz Lang or Hitchcock excerpt where it harks to that period of cinema style. It's not a copy, nor as a pastiche, but it is present and works very well, as Wilde drinks more absinthe, with a feeling of hopelessness, impotence and addiction.
With this group of actors it is assured that all the performances are uniformly good but Everett has made his special project his acting achievement. For Everett, it's quite a fulfillment in the script, direction and acting to have made this film.
