    • Synopsis
    • Based on the Oscar Wilde classic "The Portrait of Dorian Gray", this gothic, visceral thriller tells the faustian tale of a strikingly beautiful but naive young man who on arrival in London is swept into a social whirlwind by charismatic Lord Henry Wotton. While having his portrait painted he finds himself pledging his soul to stay looking as he does now. As he embarks on a life of hedonism and pleasure, the consequences begin to manifest themselves in the painting, now increasingly hideous and hidden in his attic, whilst his face remains perfect and unblemished. As those around him age, surely it is only a matter of time before his tarnished soul and myriad sins are laid to bare...
