The Importance of Being Earnest

At the risk of sounding like a sad English teacher pushing her favorite works on the masses, I give you The Importance of Being Earnest, by Oscar Wilde. Much like Chaucer, Oscar Wilde was a genius at commenting on society. Lady Bracknell is one of my favorite characters, not because I admire her politics (hehe) but because she is so ruthlessly honest that it comes off as funny. 

This is just a small scene but I highly recommend this film version of the play.
