Um die zwei befreundeten Gentleman-Schlawiner Jack Worthing (CoIin Firth) und Algy Moncrieff (Rupert Everett) kreist die Geschichte der beiden, die viel zu sehr mit dem Charmieren und dem Erfinden von Ausreden beschäftigt sind, um aIlzeit ihrer Verantwortung gerecht zu werden. So soll sich Jack auf dem Lande eigentlich um seine junge romantische Nichte Cecily (Reese Witherspoon) kümmern. Er reist aber vieI lieber unter dem faIschen Namen Ernst nach London. Derweil nimmt Algy unablässig vor gesellschaftlichen VerpfIichtungen oder Gläubigern Reissaus und gibt sich dabei auf dem Lande selbst schon mal aIs Ernst aus. Mit ihren NotIügen und DampfpIaudereien können die Herrschaften freilich vieIIeicht noch AIgys rebellische Cousine Gwendolen Fairfax (Frances O'Connor) einwickeIn, die sich nur zu gern von Jack (aIias Ernst!) erobern lassen möchte. Doch niemand im Bunde kann Lady BrackneII (Dame Judi Dench), der mächtigen Mutter von Gwendolen, etwas vormachen. Und aIs Iauter echte Liebende mit manch falschem Namen auf dem Landsitz von Jack und CeciIy zusammentreffen, gerät der amüsante Reigen um vertauschte ldentitäten, gesellschaftliche Gesetze und geschliffene Worte zum komödiantischen Wirbelwind

Der ebenso gutaussehende wie unerfahrene Dorian Gray kommt gegen Ende des 19. Jahrhunderts in London an. Dort steht er dem Maler Basil Hallward Modell, der Dorians beeindruckende Schönheit und Jugendlichkeit in einem Portrait dauerhaft festhalten will. 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)
