The History Boys

Directed By Nicholas Hytner

RComedyDrama / Fox Searchlight Pictures / Nov 22, 2006 (Limited)

THE HISTORY BOYS tells the story of an unruly class of bright, funny history students in pursuit of an undergraduate place at Oxford or Cambridge. Bounced between their maverick English master (Richard Griffiths), a young and shrewd teacher hired to up their test scores (Stephen Campbell Moore), a grossly out-numbered history teacher (Frances de la Tour), and a headmaster obsessed with results (Clive Merrison), 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 cast includes Richard Griffiths, Frances De La Tour, Stephen Campbell Moore, Samuel Anderson, Samuel Barnett, Dominic Cooper, James Corden, Sacha Dhawan, Clive Merrison and Jamie Parker.
