Not as good as the book. What do you expect though I guess? Ideal husband made by the same people wasn�t nearly as good either. Very sad. Because it COULD be so good. Such wasted potential makes me sad. I was a little fascinated by the fact that they showed Lady Bracknell as having been a showgirl/prostitute on the London stage. Such liberties. But in a way it was kind of an awesome liberty to take. By giving her a �past� they gave her character (one of the shallowest in the play) an added depth that set her further apart from the others. Also cecily�s daydreaming sequences were masterfully done and, I felt, aptly illustrated the repressed imagination of a girl in that time period.
