The Importance Of Being Earnest

The Importance Of Being Earnest

Award-winning director Anthony Asquith's sumptuous adaptation of Oscar Wilde's famous comedy assembles one of the greatest casts ever seen in a British film and still remains the definitive screen adaptation - earning a Golden Lion nomination at the Venice Film Festival and a BAFTA nomination for newcomer Dorothy Tutin. Featured here in a new transfer from original film elements, this classic of British cinema has never looked better.

Two eligible bachelors, Jack Worthing and Algernon Moncrieff, are in love. Jack's unworthy habit of representing himself as his imaginary brother Ernest, however, and Algernon's adoption of an equally fictitious name and reputation to simplify his courtship has led each girl to believe she is engaged to the non-existent Ernest! As both men try desperately to maintain their respective deceptions, neither had bargained on the interference of the fearsome Lady Bracknell!
