Synopsis:
The winning actor brilliantly portrayed a complex man with complex emotions. His exciting performance was all at once compelling, stunning and magical. Michael Sheen won the 2006 Royal Television Society best actor award for his heart-breaking portrayal of Kenneth Williams, a consummate entertainer who was loved by everyone but himself. From the intimacy of his diaries and other sources, Martyn Hesford's Fantabulosa! creates a portrait of a fastidious performer who hankered after recognition, adulation and companionship throughout his career. Yet although he could create a thousand voices and characters, he was unable to live comfortably within his own skin.

dark days - Fantabulosa!: The Kenneth Williams Story review by CP Customer

Spoiler Alert
19/11/2010

i watched this mainly as i'm a big fan of michael sheen and true to form he puts in another great performance. however, the story is such a dark, depressing one that it is not an enjoyable watch. i know it's based on kw's diairies but i felt he needed more of an injection of (his) humour to make it more poignant.
