Next week UK cinemas will get their first taste of Oliver Parker’s Dorian Gray, which is based on the book The Picture of Dorian Gray and stars Ben Barnes and Colin Firth. The first clip from the flick has just popped up, and as we near its release date, I’m sure we’ll be seeing a lot more of it soon, including a review!
When Dorian Gray, a wealthy but naïve and irresistible young man, has his portrait painted, he rashly wishes that he could remain as beautiful, youthful, and alluring as the handsome face in the portrait. Little does he know that his wish will come true. When encouraged by the decadent Lord Henry Wotton into a life of depravity and self-indulgence, Gray is stunned to discover that while the face in the painting is aging grotesquely, he is not! In fact, he remains as beautiful as ever. Nothing ages him… but Gray’s wanton lifestyle will eventually catch up with him, and the consequences of his reckless behavior will come to haunt him.
