16 editions published between 2002 and 2010 in 5 languages and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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
Ein perfekter Ehemann by Oliver [Regie] Parker( Visual )

11 editions published between 1998 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Die Geschichte dreht sich um Northam, ein Mitglied des britischen Abgeordnetenhauses. Dieser hat noch eine Leiche im Keller und wird von einer mysteriösen Frau (Moore) dazu erpresst, ein zweifelhaftes Geschäft einzugehen. Die mysteriöse Frau ist, wie sich später herausstellt, eine verhasste ehemalige Mitschülerin seiner Ehefrau (Blanchett). Alles löst sich zur allgemeinen Zufriedenheit auf -- aber nicht, bevor nicht einige gewundene Wege des Schicksals begangen wurden, einige Verwechslungen stattgefunden haben und viel komischer Spott und soziale Spitzen verteilt wurden. Wilde, dessen unruhiges Leben und in der Öffentlichkeit breitgetretene Homosexualität in dem Film Wilde aus dem Jahr 1997 dargestellt werden, hatte ein scharfes Auge für Heucheleien und die künstlichen Posen, die von der damaligen Gesellschaft verlangt wurden. Eine politische Aussage steht aber niemals einem Lacher im Weg. Prächtig ausgestattet und wunderbar kurzweilig, wird Ein perfekter Ehemann jeden zufrieden stellen, der Spaß an Sozialsatire oder romantischer Komödie hat
