As their respective alternate lives collide, these two will have to decide whether being Ernest or earnest will land them their heart's desire. A contemporary telling retaining the play's classic language yet infused with a shot of sexuality, 'The Importance of Being Earnest' is a prime example of how Wilde's sharp wit and humor transcends the test of time.
