Wild about Wilde

I’m bursting with anticipation; next month sees the release of a movie adaptaion of the work, of one of Dublin’s most notorious playwrights. Oscar Wilde‘s only published novel, The Picture of Dorian Gray, has been recreated (again) for the big screen and stars Colin Firth (Bridget Jones’s Darcy) and Ben Barnes (Prince Caspian in Narnia 2).

Here’s the movie trailer:

Pics and more…

Colin Firth Ben Barnes - Dorian Grey

I’m really looking forward to seeing it, it looks incedibly dark but fabulously inviting as well; with its fabulous scenery and stunning costumes (yay, the Victorian era was such an amazing time for fashion, all bustles, corsets and big full skirts)  If you are unaware of the story here is the synopsis from Momentum Pictures, who are making the movie:

Based on the classic novel by Oscar Wilde, Dorian Gray tells the story of a strikingly beautiful young man named Dorian (Ben Barnes). He arrives in Victorian London and is swept into a social whirlwind by the charismatic Henry Wotton (Colin Firth), who introduces Dorian to the hedonistic pleasures of the city. When a portrait of Dorian is unveiled, such is it’s beauty that he makes a pledge: he would give anything to stay as he is in the picture – even his soul. Dorian Gray examines the destructive power of beauty, the blind pursuit of pleasure and the darkness that can result.
