THE HAPPY PRINCE (15) – 2018 UK 105 min

Director: Rupert Everett
Stars: Rupert Everett, Colin Firth, Emily Watson

Responsible for the script and direction, as well as starring as Oscar Wilde, this could be regarded as a vanity project by Rupert Everett, but in fact it does an excellent job of chronicling Wilde’s last days. Having been released from Reading Gaol, he escapes to France and Italy, a broken man, battling with his demons, while friends, ex-lovers and family try to keep him on the straight and narrow. Wilde in Everett’s portrayal becomes the prince of his own fairy tale, disintegrating as his end approaches, while his days of triumph come back to haunt him in well-realised flashbacks.


Plus a BRIT School Showcase film, screened in partnership with the School’s Film & Media Production department. For this film we are showing SNARE (15) (3.16 min), directed by Theo Batterham, explores a theme of being trapped; contrasting the influence of countryside and city environments.
