Certificate PG

Lewin’s characteristically sensitive adaptation of Oscar Wilde’s Faustian fable boasts a beautifully modulated performance from Hurd Hatfield as the apparently ageless Victorian gentleman with a dark secret concealed in his attic. Lovely turns, too, from Sanders as his cynical mentor in hedonism, and Lansbury as the singer Dorian falls for. The elegant sets, strikingly shot by Harry Stradling, vividly evoke an atmosphere of corruption.
