The Happy Prince
The Happy Prince is a British biographical drama film about Oscar Wilde, written and directed by Rupert Everett. The film stars Everett, Colin Firth, Colin Morgan, Emily Watson, Edwin Thomas and Tom Wilkinson.
Directed by acclaimed Swedish filmmaker Göran Hugo Olsson, That Summer centres on the film project artist Peter Beard initiated together with the incandescent Lee Radziwill about her relatives: The Beales of Grey Gardens. Lost for decades, this extraordinary footage re-emerges in Olsson’s documentary, which focuses on Peter Beard and his family of friends, who formed a vibrant and profoundly influential creative community in Montauk (Long Island) in the 1970s. Featuring Peter Beard, Lee Radziwill, Edith Ewing Bouvier Beale, Edith Bouvier Beale (Little Edie and Big Edie), Andy Warhol.
Set in 1950’s post-war London, renowned dressmaker Reynolds Woodcock (Daniel Day-Lewis) and his sister Cyril (Lesley Manville) are at the centre of British fashion, dressing royalty, movie stars, heiresses, socialites, debutants and dames with the distinct style of The House of Woodcock. Women come and go through Woodcock’s life, providing the confirmed bachelor with inspiration and companionship, until he comes across a young, strong-willed woman, Alma (Vicky Krieps), who soon becomes a fixture in his life as his muse and lover. Once controlled and planned, he finds his carefully tailored life disrupted by love.
