The Importance of Being Earnest
  • Description

    Award-winning director Anthony Asquith's sumptuous adaptation of Oscar Wilde's famous comedy assembles one of the greatest casts ever seen in a British film and still remains the definitive screen adaptation – earning a Golden Lion nomination at the Venice Film Festival and a BAFTA nomination for newcomer Dorothy Tutin. Featured here in a stunning new transfer from original film elements, this classic of British cinema has never looked better.

    Two eligible bachelors, Jack Worthing and Algernon Moncrieff, are in trouble. Jack's unworthy habit of representing himself as his imaginary brother Ernest and Algernon's adoption of an equally fictitious – and perpetually sickly – friend has allowed them both a latitude in their personal lives that they would otherwise have not enjoyed. Their respective deceptions start to unravel, however, when both chaps become mortally wounded by Cupid's arrow – setting up a series of events which will change their lives forever!
