Named after a collection of short stories for children written by Oscar Wilde first published in May 1888, The Happy Prince chronicles Wilde’s last years of life exiled in Paris after his very public disgrace and imprisonment for ‘gross indecency’ in 1895. The film premiered at the 2018 Sundance Film Festival and was shown at the 2018 BFI Flare: London LGBT Film Festival.
