Just watched with my kids!!
1 January 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Have just watched this movie, with my kids....

"Mum are you sure, they actually hit kids!!" They asked, "Yes" was my reply.. "This was set along time ago" I replied.. The story may be old, But they sat there in silence watching it.. They enjoyed it and when Flashman was finally sent "down" they cheered. Nothing like a good old fashioned story...... Excellent drama, and the boy who played Tom was a gem. Obviously the beatings, and the fireplace scene was not nice, However it was a good understanding of how people used to lived. Stephen Fry was good as head master, I was not at first convinced whether he was strong enough in his character he portrayed, But he was fine...
