A little-known film that deserves more...
5 December 2003 | by (Lennoxville, Quebec) – See all my reviews

I only took the time to track down this film, because one of the writers is my headmaster at my private school. He attended that same school as a child and has also taught there. This movie is representitive of our school. A North American Co-Ed School with British roots; strict but with heart.

The movie never focuses deeply on one character, but jumps from thread to thread, all of which are easily believed private school situations. At the beginning this can be annoying, keeping the characters straight takes a few scenes (uniforms and all)but the deeper you go into the film, the more satisfying they get.

The movie has its funny and dramatic parts. The acting is good and the setting is perfect. Good authentic Rugby scenes.

I recommend it if you have any interest in private school life, which is honestly the lead in the movie. Obscure and hard to find pick it up, it is worth a look. 8/10.
