Synopsis

An Ideal Husband by Oscar Wilde

Wilde's subtle satire of the British hypocrisy of the late 1800s toys with the vulnerability of public figures and the powerful playing card of dirty secrets. "An Ideal Husband" portrays the delicate balance between righteousness, love, and betrayal, and serves it up with a generous smattering of wit and elegance. Recently filmed with Rupert Everett, Cate Blanchett and Julianne Moore.
