The Importance Of Being Earnest
Algernon Moncrieff (Rupert Everett) has discovered that he has a secret in common with his friend Jack Worthing (Colin Firth) - they both use alter egos when in a tight spot. However, when Algernon decides to pose as Jack's alter ego - a brother Ernest from London - for a weekend in the country, he finds that Jack's ward Cecily (Reese Witherspoon) has developed an infatuation with the mysterious brother; and now she has finally met him.
Meanwhile, Algernon's cousin Gwendolen (Frances O'Connor) is also staying for the weekend and knows Jack as his alter ego. Gwendolen's mother, the stern Lady Bracknell (Judi Dench), has to be convinced to give her blessing to the blossoming romances.

If ordering from a UK store, please note that you are in Region 1 (DVD)/Region A (Blu-ray), whilst the UK is in Region 2/B, respectively. This means that many - but by no means all - may fail to play. Look for products marked "Region free", "All regions", "Region 0" or "Multi-region". Blu-rays may also be marked "Region A/B/C", "Region free", or variations thereof. You may also check whether your DVD/Blu-ray player supports multi-region playback (also referred to as "region free"), or whether it can be set to do so. There should, of course, be no problems with books, CDs, or other physical items.
