Devilishly attractive Lord Illingworth is notorious for his skill as a seducer. But he is still invited to all the best houses while his female conquests must hide their shame in seclusion. In this devastating comedy, Wilde uses his celebrated wit to expose English societys narrow view of everything from sexual mores to Americans. Includes an interview with Oscar Wilde's only grandchild Merlin Holland, who is also a noted biographer and editor of Wilde's works. An L.A.
