An Englishman in New York is a 2009 biographical drama film that chronicles the English gay writer Quentin Crisp's later years spent in New York City. It is a follow-up to the 1975 TV movie The Naked Civil Servant, with John Hurt reprising his role as Crisp. The film takes its title from "Englishman in New York", a song about Crisp written by Sting for his 1987 album ...Nothing Like the Sun.
