5.0 out of 5 stars Seriously underrated film, 11 Sept. 2006
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: An Ideal Husband [DVD] [1999] (DVD)
This is the sort of film that you really want to own. It loses nothing and gains detail the more often you watch it. Rupert Everett's lack of leading roles is a great loss to film, as he has the looks, timing and presence to carry off any number of romantic leads. I don't see what an actor's private proclivities have to do with what they portray on screen - Cary Grant being an interesting topic in that respect. Anyway, it's a fantastic script, a good plot, a serious message in a fluffy film with a happy ending. Perfect Sunday-night viewing.

Its interesting what you say but there is the case of Rock Hudson. For years he played opposite Doris Day etc as the straight male while a lot of hollywood knew he was gay and nobody minded then came Aids and I know for a fact Linda Evans who played his love interest in the TV show Dynasty was horrified when she found out that not only did Rock Hudson have aids and had been seeking treatment but that he did not declare his illness to anyone and carried on as if he was well. This was at a time when people were not sure how the disease could be caught. There was a lot of kissing going on between these two actors in the show! So even though you have no problem watching gay males playing straight I think the actresses who work opposite them, and might have to get intimate with them should be protected if you know what I mean. Equality and Human Rights for all not just gays but straights as well

Sigmund - protected by accurate knowledge perhaps!
Anyway, Everett is openly gay and has been so for years, so it is hardly the same thing.
