The Happy Prince is not the story of Prince Phillip on a royal trip abroad finding his aides distracted and thus allowing him free rein to say whatever he likes to the locals waiting to greet him.
Instead, in a cheap Parisian hotel room , Oscar Wilde (Rupert Everett) lies on his death bed and the past floods back, transporting 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? The lover who has been imprisoned, now freed, yet still running towards ruin in the final chapter of his life?
Under the microscope of death, he reviews the failed attempt to reconcile with his long suffering wife Constance (Emily Watson), the ensuing reprisal of his fatal love affair with Lord Alfred Douglas (Colin Morgan) and the warmth and devotion of friends Robbie Ross and Reggie Turner who tried and failed to save him from himself.
THE HAPPY PRINCE is a portrait of the dark side of a genius who lived and died for love in the last days of the nineteenth century.
