“The Happy Prince” quotes(2018)
Plot – In his last days, Oscar Wilde is in the middle of a crisis. The event that almost ended his career was the trial for his homosexuality, which sentenced him to serve two years of hard labour that undermined his physical and mental health. Trapped in a sentimental conundrum in which everyone - Constance, Robbie, Bosie - is in love with him, Oscar is deprived also of his freedom. After leaving prison is his forced to go into exile and face his deamons. In Paris he relives his past, which seems almost like a waking dream that carries him away towards distant spaces and times, when he was the most famous man in London, the artist that everyone worshipped but then betrayed.
