ORIGINALLY brought to the big screen in 1970, this film is based on Oscar Wilde's classic novel that follows a handsome man's pursuit of eternal youth.
Ben Barnes (Chronicles of Narnia) plays the breathtakingly beautiful young man, Dorian Gray whose portrait is painted by artist Basil Hallward (Ben Chaplin).
Soon after, Dorian meets Lord Henry Wotton (Colin Firth), a charismatic socialite who believes in nothing more than the pursuit of beauty and sensual pleasures.

From then on each of his sins appear as ghastly physical disfigurements on the painting, while his own appearance remains youthful and flawless.
