Have you ever been surprised to find out a film was based on a book? Film Friday is a weekly feature that spotlights films that were adapted from books.
I just adore Oscar Wilde’s The Importance of Being Earnest. I love the play more than the film and highly recommend seeing it on stage if you ever get a chance. Since Wilde’s birthday was earlier this week and the actors I adored in the stage version were not filmed, I opted for the 2002 film version.
Two men in the same social circle both have an alter ego named Ernest, a comedy of mistaken identities soon erupts.
Cecily: You must not laugh at me, darling, but it has always been a girlish dream of mine to love a man named Ernest.
