Early 20th century England: while toasting his daughter Catherine's engagement, Arthur Winslow learns the royal naval academy expelled his 14-year-old son, Ronnie, for stealing five shillings. Father asks son if it is true; when the lad denies it, Arthur risks fortune, health, domestic peace, and Catherine's prospects to pursue justice. After defeat in the military court of appeals, Arthur and Catherine go to Sir Robert Morton, a brilliant, cool barrister and M.P., who examines Ronnie and suggests that they take the matter before Parliament to seek permission to sue the Crown. They do, which keeps Ronnie's story on the front page and keeps Catherine in Sir Robert's ken. Written by
Neil North, who played the First Lord of the Admiralty in the 1999 version of The Winslow Boy, played Ronnie Winslow in the 1948 version. See more »

You don't behave as if you are in love.
How does one behave as if one is in love?
[Looks at the book Catherine is reading]
One doesn't read "The Social Evil and The Social Good." One reads Lord Byron.

This film touched me in a way that prompted me to state my affections for this film.
I love this film. The plot, character development, dialogue, direction, acting, wardrobe and every detail associated with the film mirrors perfection. Rebecca Pidgeon is a very talented actress and one can see the resemblance between Catherine and Elizabeth in Jane Austin's Pride and Prejudice (Yes, Rebecca Pidgeon would be the perfect Elizabeth Bennet). Jeremy Northam is devilishly handsome (my, oh my) as the reclusive Sir Robert Morton. After seeing this film and reviewing Catherine's and Sir Robert's dialogue at the end of the film numerous times, one can only hope that their path will cross again.
During the era of violence and sex in films, it is refreshing and comforting to see a rated "General" film that can be viewed with one's whole family.
After all, this is a period piece full of love, honour, justice and a families desire to right.
