The History Boys
Based on an Alan Bennet play of the same name the film is set in the mid 1980’s in a Sheffield English grammar school. The story centres around a group of grammar school students studying for their Oxbridge entrance exams. A newcomer is brought in to coach the brightest of them on how to impress the examiners at Oxford and Cambridge and the stage is set for a battle between stuffy tradition and modern techniques. The soundtrack is great and there’s a lot of fun to be had in guessing where each boy will end up in life.
