The Importance of Being Earnest

5 Stars

This funny movie is adapted from Oscar Wilde's play of the same name. I hadn't seen or read the play beforehand, so I had no expectations of the film, but I haven't seen a Reese Witherspoon film yet that I didn't enjoy so I figured it was worth a shot. Both Jake and I thoroughly enjoyed the quirky humor and general silliness that ensued. The language is a little like reading Jane Eyre, though you shan't need to have your English dictionary nearby.

  1. I've both read and played scenes from the play & it's hilarious. I hope they stuck to the script & didn't try to modernize it - it was always ahead of it's time.

    I didn't know there was a new adaptation. Will check it out - thanks!
