"The Importance of Being Earnest" adapts Oscar Wilde's play of the same name, which tells the story of two young men living in Victorian England who use the same pseudonym, "Earnest," on the sly. Their schemes work perfectly until they both fall in love with women using that same name. This leads to a comedy of mistaken identities. The film stars Rupert Everett and Colin Firth star as Algernon Moncrieff and Jack Worthing and also contains performances by Reese Witherspoon, Judi Dench, Frances O'Connor and Anna Massey.
This film is rated PG for mild sensuality.
