Well acted drama by promising young actors
2 January 2005 | by (Brighton, England) – See all my reviews

Tom Brown's Schooldays is a well acted drama by a large group of promising young actors. The drama is predominantly male, but I still managed to enjoy it! Stephen Fry played a firm but fair headmaster, and you can see how he really 'feels' for some of the boys, and gives every boy a second chance.

Alex Pettyfer, who plays the young Tom Brown is a very talented young lad, who carried the title character very well, and the audience could see what kind of character Tom Brown is like, and I felt he was really a nice character. His character development in the drama is good, and his acting improves and improved without, particularly when tragic events occur.

Joe Beattie who plays the bully Flashman is very good, and really evoked my feelings to a strong sense of dislike for the character.

Overall, I would say this drama is definitely worth a watch, and the actors cast to the roles fit them perfectly. They all give a really good sense of how cruel school life was for young boys in those times, and you really feel empathy for the young lads.

I also certainly hope to see more of Alex Pettyfer in more things to come, as many other girls I'm sure will agree with me!
