Dorian Gray (9-Sep-2009)

Director: Oliver Parker

Writer: Toby Finlay

From novel: The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde

Producer: Barnaby Thompson

Keywords: Drama

Film adaptation of the Oscar Wilde classic tells of a wicked man and his portrait guaranteeing him eternal youth.

Dorian Gray arrives in London a most handsome and impressionable young man, shaped into a fixture of high society by Lord Henry Wotton. Taken aback by the radiant beauty present in a painted portrait of him, Dorian vows to remain as beautiful as he looks in the picture; this proves to be his ultimate undoing as he climbs London's seedy social ladder on the strength of his looks and apparent agelessness, transforming into a narcissistic and wicked individual while his portrait ages and fades away.
