Actor Rupert Everett writes, directs, and stars in this film about the final years of the famed Irish poet and playwright, Oscar Wilde, with himself, of course, playing the famous bard. This project was years in development as Everett worked tirelessly to get the money together to make the picture (there’s even a documentary about it). But hey, it’s here, and it co-stars Edwin Thomas and Colin Morgan as the competing two loves of his life, Emily Watson as his long-suffering wife, Colin Firth and Tom Wilkinson as friends…how is it? Weeeellll….we had kinda a mixed reaction. Let Chris, Ben, and Kim tell you all about it.

Born in the wilds of northern Virginia, in 1992 Chris managed to put all of his survival skills to use and barely escaped with his life to Austin Texas, where ever since he’s dabbled in everything from plumber’s assistant to sandwich maker, from band to bar management. An opportunity to see theatrical release films for free, by becoming a critic on a local public access show called “The Reel Deal”, turned into a full time job when Chris and his friends decided to take it to the internet. They built the site Spill.com, adding multiple podcasts and animated features, to no small amount of success. During this time, a fortuitous friendship sprung up between Chris and young Brian Salisbury, who was also a local film critic, and they merged their forces of will, and their laundry list of ideas for shows, to eventually build this paradise you see before you.
