Oscar Wilde's classic novel, about a man who appears to stay forever young, gets fresh treatment in a version that boasts an impressive cast in support of title star Ben Barnes ( "The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian").
Colin Firth, Rebecca Hall (" Vicky Cristina Barcelona"), Ben Chaplin, Caroline Goodall ( "Schindler's List") and Maryam d'Abo ("The Living Daylights") also are featured in the tale, which still involves a painting that reveals the shocking truth about Gray. Director Oliver Parker visited Wilde territory before with "An Ideal Husband" and "The Importance of Being Earnest." *** (R: AS, N, V) (Also on Blu-ray)
