Today's recommended viewing： this excellent film adaptation of Oscar Wilde's The Importance of Being Earnest, A Trivial Comedy for Serious People (1895; 2002, in full).
Directed by Oliver Parker.
Starring Rupert Everett / Colin Firth / Reese Witherspoon / Judi Dench. I counted 243 jokes in the film; how many can you find?
