The History Boys is a better treatment of some similar themes, as, in a different way, is Larisa Shepitko's Wings. However, this is not bad at all, though not as well done as the 1951 version. The fine acting of Albert Finney and Ben Silverstone is a definite plus. Silverstone went on to appear in the gay teen drama Get Real.

A pleasant movie about the quintessential English public school and the relationship between masters and pupils. Albert Finney is excellent as the austere teacher and Ben Silverstone equally good and perfectly cast as the intelligent but vulnerable Taplow, whose other name we never get to know. An all round splendid film with quite a number of cute boys in it.
