Directing Debut: Laurence Dunmore directs this film so extraordinarily well, it may very well win him his next Oscar. "The Libertine", having earned 8 British Independent Film Award nominations, including Best Picture and Best Actor for Depp, is arguably, Johnny Depp's greatest, most brilliant performance to date...
Set in a 17 Century London, Depp plays a scandalously decadent John Wilmot, the second Earl of Rochester, whose passionate romance produces the writings of a most scurrilous play which lampoon Charles II...
His words are his weapons, though lead to the Earl's banishment and eventual downfall.
