Customer Review

on 28 October 2006
Although the settings for these productions are firmly in the period of Wilde they all look a little dated, however if you are able to put that aside the performances are wonderful. Especially good are Gielgud and Brett in 'The Picture Of Dorian Gray'; Joan Plowright and Paul McGann in 'The Importance Of Being Earnest' and a serprising Amanda Redman. But I did find the 70's filming of 'An Ideal Husband' too much. It felt too staged and cramped. I hired the DVDs for my daughter to see a production that wouldn't have the Hollywood treatment of messing about with Wildes dialoge. So, if you don't mind it looking a bit tired it's worth a watch
