Entertainment Reviews:

Rolling Stone - 12/01/2005
3.5 stars out of 4 -- "This one-of-a-kind spellbinder from first-time director Laurence Dunmore is not afraid to shock. Depp is a raunchy wonder..."
Total Film - 07/01/2006
"Laurence Dunmore's debut is stylish and murky, with Depp's charming rogue lighting up the gloom."
Entertainment Weekly - 06/30/2006
"A must for fans of Depp and overreaching period cinema..."

Description by OLDIES.com:

Oscar nominee* Johnny Depp delivers "a tour de force performance" (Baz Bamigboye, The Daily Mail) in the "seductively entertaining" (Jan Stuart, Newsday) The Libertine. As the celebrated writer and bad boy John Wilmot, second Earl of Rochester, Depp brings to life a decadent 17th century London. There, Wilmot falls passionately in love with his aspiring actress muse (OscarĀ® nominee Samantha Morton**), but is cast from the heights of privileged society when he scandalizes King Charles II (OscarĀ® nominee John Malkovich***) with a shockingly audacious play. At the depths of ruin, the rebel seeks redemption on his own terms. "Johnny Depp is brilliant," raves Cosmopolitan, while Peter Travers of Rolling Stone calls The Libertine a "one-of-a-kind spellbinder."
