The History Boys (2006)

Film details


Adaptation of Allan Bennett's stage play. Bounced between their maverick English teacher, a grossly-outnumbered history teacher and a headmaster obsessed with results, a group of students attempt to sift through it all to pass the daunting Oxbridge university admissions process. Their journey becomes as much about how education works as it is where education leads.
