Proyección de la película 'The importance of being Earnest', en versión original subtitulada.

A 2002 British-American romantic comedy-drama film directed by Oliver Parker, based on Oscar Wilde's classic comedy of manners play “The Importance of Being Earnest“, A Trivial Comedy for Serious People first performed on 14 February 1895 at the St James's Theatre in London. It is a farcical comedy in which the protagonists maintain fictitious personæ to escape burdensome social obligations. Working within the social conventions of late Victorian London, the play's major themes are the triviality with which it treats institutions as serious as marriage, and the resulting satire of Victorian ways.

The film won the 2003 Italian National Syndicate of Film Journalists's Silver Ribbon award for Best Costume Design. Reese Witherspoon was nominated for a Teen Choice Award (Choice Actress – Comedy) for her performance as Cecily.
