"The History Boys" is a 2006 British comedy film adapted by Alan Bennett from his play of the same name, which won the 2005 Olivier Award for Best New Play and the 2006 Tony Award for Best Play. Centers on an unruly class of bright, funny teenage boys in pursuit of sex, sport and a college degree. Bounced between their maverick English teacher, a young and shrewd professor hired to up their test scores, a grossly out-numbered history teacher, and a headmaster obsessed with results, the boys attempt to sift through it all to pass the daunting university admissions process. Their journey becomes as much about how education works, as it is about where education leads. "The History Boys" was directed by Nicholas Hytner, who directed the original production of The History Boys at the Royal National Theatre in London. Download "The History Boys" right now!

brilliant movie17 October 2009

I can't recommended this more, it is excellent. Richard Griffiths is the teacher in a million with a class of future stars; James Coburn, dominic cooper, Russell tovey and also the wonderful Frances de la Tour.
