An Ideal Husband (1999)

Directed by
Oliver Parker

Oliver Parker's 1991 film, based on Oscar Wilde's play, stars Rupert Everett (pictured) as Lord Arthur Goring. According to his friends Goring is "the idlest man in London" who is only aroused from his torpor by Mabel Chiltern (Minnie Driver, pictured, centre).

Meanwhile, Mabel's father, Sir Robert Chiltern (Jeremy Northam), is being blackmailed by Mrs Laura Cheveley (Julianne Moore) to change his opinion on a bill going through Parliament.

As betrayal, mistaken identities and romance abound, the delight comes from Wilde's bon mots and a top-class supporting cast (Peter Vaughan, Lindsay Duncan, John Wood and Cate Blanchett, pictured, left) in a classic comedy of manners.
