Video: Rupert Everett recites Oscar Wilde outside his prison cell

Rupert Everett has hailed the works of Oscar Wilde, who was imprisoned for homosexual acts, as resonant in a world where some people are still punished for being gay.

The actor, who has just finished filming his directorial debut The Happy Prince chronicling the final years of Wilde's life, spoke of the emotion he felt as he stood in front of the playwright's cell door to give a reading of his final poem.
