The Winslow Boy
AroView: Writer-Director extraordinaire David Mamet changes pace, eschewing fiery dialogue for a subtly-modulated evocation of the Edwardian England.
Intelligent antidote to the Merchant-Ivory brigade, with several intriguing sub-themes informing its central story of a middle-class family suffering the indignities of a status-sinking injustice. The cast of Nigel Hawthorne, Rebecca Pidgeon and Jeremy Northam stay wonderfully straight-backed. From the Terrence Rattigan play.
