Synopsis

The story of John Wilmot (Depp), a.k.a. the Earl of Rochester, a poet who famously drank and debauched his way to an early grave, only to earn posthumous critical acclaim for his life’s work.

Dove Review

This story is about John Wilmot and his life that was filled with sexual activity, with both men and women, which led to his death. In this film the viewer doesn’t have to have an imagination because pretty much everything is shown, discussed and or implied. This film should have been rated NC-17. Some of the sexual content and the crude language I doubt were even used in the 17th century-if so they were not discussed in public as this film portrays.

The thing that struck me was Johnny Depp’s portrayal which was believeable.
