Directed by Richard Laxton
John Hurt stars as Quentin Crisp (a role he originally played in 1975's 'The Naked Civil Servant') in this biographical drama based on the last 20 years of Crisp's life.
The literary figure and gay iconoclast emigrated to New York in 1981 and lived there until his death in 1999.
The film observes Crisp in both his public and private lives, from his seemingly cavalier response to the outbreak of AIDS to his tender relationship with his dying friend Patrick Angus (Jonathan Tucker) and his own response to growing old.
Denis O'Hare, Swoosie Kurtz and Cynthia Nixon co-star.
