Synopsis
Two young gents living in the 1890's England have taken to bending the truth in order to put some excitement in their lives. Jack Worthing (Colin Firth) lives in the country with his pretty ward Cecily Cardew (Reese Witherspoon). But in the city, he goes by the name of Ernest and is in love with Gwendolen Fairfax (Frances O'Connor). Miss Fairfax's cousin is Algernon Moncrieff (Rupert Everett), who, pretending to be Ernest, goes to the country and falls in love with Jack's ward Cecily. When they all come together, we have two men who claim to be Ernest and aren't and two girls who are in love with men named Ernest who aren't earnest.
