British drama of middle class manners set in a Boarding School
25 November 2001 | by activewhiteguySee all my reviews

Interesting study of Edwardian values and manners in England before the Beatles and sexual revolution of the 60's.

Unlike many films of the period, it is not overplayed, the characters are well acted and convincing.
