Synopsis: Shakespeare said, “What's in a name?” Oscar Wilde said, “Apparently, everything.”
The costumes and settings were gorgeous, Dench was flawless, and Witherspoon was charming. It was funny but, occasionally, the exchanges between Everett and Firth fell a bit flat and Wilde's biting wit was lost. Good movie but not quite as good as it could have been.
I thoroughly enjoyed the witty exchanges between Firth and Everett and I thought Witherspoon carried off her part quite well. Dench was her usual amazing self. Wilde's humour was quick and fun and I really enjoyed it.Added 29 August 2004 at 4:30 PM
