Rupert Everett and Richard Wolinsky.

Rupert Everett in conversation with Richard Wolinsky, September 26, 2018 about the film he wrote, directed and starred in, The Happy Prince, about Oscar Wilde’s final years in exile.

Rupert Everett’s film career took off with lead roles in the British films “Another Country” and “Dance with a Stranger” in the mid 1980s before his career took a nosedive when he came out as gay. He resurfaced in the late 1990s as a Hollywood star in the film “My Best Friend’s Wedding,” a period that lasted a short time before roles again dried up. Shortly afterward, he began working on a screenplay about Oscar Wilde’s final years, which finally has reached the screen as “The Happy Prince. The film stars Rupert Everett, who also served as director and screenwriter. The Happy Prince is now available for STARZ subscribers as well as On Demand.
