About The Libertine


The film chronicles the genius and debauchery of the second Earl of Rochester, poet John Wilmot (Johnny Depp). Wilmot's life is explored through a series of adventures in London, including a passionate romance with young actress Elizabeth Barry (Samantha Morton) and the authorship of a bawdy play, which makes a laughing stock of the very man who commissioned it, none other than King Charles II (John Malkovich). This proverbial last straw leads to the Earl's banishment, and he drinks himself into an early grave, later earning posthumous praise for his body of work. Laurence Dunmore makes his directorial debut with this film, successfully recreating an authentic 17th century London by combining the luster of the court of the Restoration with the city's seedier aspect.
