A group of history pupils at a boys' grammar school in Sheffield pursue a place at Oxford or Cambridge, where they are subjected to contrasting styles of teaching. Adapted from Alan Bennett's (THE MADNESS OF KING GEORGE) immensely successful play of the same name, THE HISTORY BOYS focuses on the experiences of eight history students at a grammar school in northern England in the mid 1980s as they attempt to get a place at the top two universities in the country; Oxford and Cambridge. The headmaster of the school is keen to send as many of his pupils to Oxbridge as possible and employs supply teacher Irwin (Stephen Campbell Moore, BRIGHT YOUNG THINGS) to teach them the tricks of trade concerning how to get into Oxford or Cambridge. This style of teaching is contrasted sharply with that of the boys' eccentric and maverick English teacher Hector (Richard Griffiths, WITHNAIL AND I) and the facts and figures based teaching style of their history teacher Mrs Linnott (Frances De La Tour, HARRY POTTER AND THE GOBLET OF FIRE). THE HISTORY BOYS primarily focuses on the state of the education system in the 1980s and what the teenage boys learn about life, love and education along the way and succeeds in being a hugely entertaining film about growing up and the different approaches to life one can take.

I've seen this for £3 in the supermarkets... I guess this is the cheapest on-line, but it's not an amazing deal.

[FONT="Comic Sans MS"][SIZE="4"]My brother's in this....it's a great film - odd ending but very good. Go Get Some!! :thumbsup:[/SIZE][/FONT]

GREAT FILM??????? It's the biggest load of crap I have ever seen, to make matters worse there is a perverted, fat, old school teacher in it who likes nothing better in letting school boys sit, on the back of his motorbike.

LOAD OF S**T

Good value for a funny DVD with lots of film references in it. Dubious morals though - you can't really make Hector a hero.
