Using mostly the same cast that made this play popular on stage, The History Boys translates to film beautifully.
I think maybe Britain's a little like Japan in having very high standards at the end of high school (and corresponding student stress) that then fades in university.
The ending did not bother me; for most people who felt that it smacked too much of good university = good positions, well, why not?
The dialogue is stunning, the acting superb, and the comedy razor sharp.Published 7 days ago by Cynthia M. Martin
The dialogue was brilliantly written and superbly performed.
Excellent casting, and intriguing storyline.

First class acting by everyone, especially Richard Griffiths, although Frances de la Tour is a gem in the part. Read morePublished 19 days ago by Feasible
