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.

The film follows Quentin Crisp’s move in the late 1970s from London to New York City, where he was embraced by celebrities and artists.[1]
