Every actor in the movie is perfectly suited to their character, and you can't day that about every movie you see.
Rupert is in love with a ray of sunshine in the human form of Cary Elwes, and Colin is screaming for the revolution to begin. The movie is about them, what living in England at the time would have been like, and what living in a boys school was like also.
The boys seem to accept Rupert because it is widely assumed that he will grow out of it. When he declares it as a way of life, his unhappiness begins. He is able to be friends with Colin Firth because they are both outcasts in their way ("The Commie and the queer" is how he describes them at one point").
The movie is very enjoyable and it is worth a look. You've spent ninety minutes doing stupider things than watching this.
