Unter den Fittichen des charismatischen Lord Henry Wotton findet Dorian schnell Gefallen an den hedonistischen Freuden der gehobenen Großstadt-Gesellschaft und lernt, dass sein Aussehen ihm alle Türen öffnet. So wundert es nicht, dass, kaum ist das Bild enthüllt, Dorian ein gedankenloses Versprechen äußert: Seine Seele würde er dafür geben, dass nicht er, sondern das Gemälde altert! Dorians Wunsch wird Wirklichkeit: Während er sich ohne jegliche äußere Konsequenzen hemmungslosem Vergnügen und verbotenen Begierden hingibt, wird sein gemaltes Abbild mit jeder begangenen Sünde hässlicher und grauenerregender. Um sein dunkles Geheimnis zu bewahren, geht Dorian bis zum Äußersten. Jahre später quälen ihn die Geister der Vergangenheit mehr denn je. Als er sich in die junge Emily verliebt, schöpft er wieder Hoffnung auf Erlösung ... (www.film-zeit.de, 24.2.11)
