Film The History Boys (2006)
Eight unruly grammar school boys preparing to take their Oxbridge entrance exams are exposed to the contrasting teaching styles of two very different schoolmasters - the intellectually enthusiastic Hector, who seeks to instil a love of knowledge for its own sake, and the more cynical new arrival Irwin, who intends to equip them with the specific information they need to get ahead. Comedy drama adapted from Alan Bennett's play, with Richard Griffiths, Stephen Campbell Moore and Frances de la Tour
