History. It's Just One Thing After Another.
Starring the original stage cast, and based on the play by Alan Bennett, The History Boys brings together eight bright, funny history students in the north of England in the mid '80s.
Their Headmaster is obsessed with breaking into the ranks of those schools that regularly send boys up to Oxford and Cambridge and enlists Irwin (Stephen Campbell Moore), a shrewd newcomer, to coach the boys into intellectual shape for the trials ahead. Seduced though they are by the exam-busting bag of tricks offered by the temporary supply teacher, the boys are torn by their loyalty to the hugely eccentric, poetry-spouting English master Hector (Richard Griffiths). As they prepare for the daunting admissions process, the journey of the History Boys becomes as much about how education works as it is about where education leads.
