"The History Boys" is also very hip to British pop culture, with numerous '80s rock songs throughout, and very intellectual, with poignant poetry found in nearly every scene.Read more ›
The cast is superb; they mesh REALLY well. This is the original theatre cast so that may explain their ease with each other. Very witty dialogue and beautifully filmed. There ARE a couple scenes that drag on longer than they need to, but what are you gonna do? Mostly all movies are like that. The soundtrack is phenomenal - if you can find it, do yourself a favour and pick it up.
The ending was very bittersweet - very unexpected but poignant all the same.
The film is not simple and you will think about it for a long time afterwards. At least rent it, but consider purchasing.

The History Boys. It was wonderful. Great acting by everyone concerned and especially the superbly gifted, and much missed, Richard Griffiths. First rate!Published on April 30 2013 by Marjory d. Smith
