This is the classic screen adaptation of Oscar Wilde's delightful comedy of 19th century English upper class manners.
The TeachWithMovies.com Learning Guide to The Importance of Being Earnest will help teachers introduce Oscar Wilde and ridicule the foibles of upper class English society of the late 19th century.
