Be Careful What You Wish For
In this gothic tale of the dangers of vanity, The Picture of Dorian Gray paints a fascinating and grim picture of Victorian England. When the young and beautiful Dorian has his portrait painted, he laments that the painting will remain youthful forever as his own body ages and decays, wishing the opposite were true.
When he comes to discover that his wish came true, he descends into a downward spiral of hedonism that destroys the lives of those around him, all as his own face remains beautiful and the painting grows more and more grotesque.
Will the vain man face consequences for his actions, or will the haunting image in the painting drive him mad?
