Genius. Celebrity. Accused, convicted and destroyed for daring "the love that dare not speak its name." Oscar Wilde Robert Morley stars as the celebrated and enduring author of such works as "The Picture of Doran Gray," "Lady Windermere's Fan," "Salome" and "The Importance of Being Earnest," a man guilty of being Irish, literate and gay. But Wilde transgressed when he became involved with an young aristocrat, Lord Alfred Douglas (John Neville), whose father, the Marquess of Queensberry (Edward Chapman), accused him of unspeakable crimes, an accusation that resulted in trial, imprisonment, banishment and financial ruin.
