Kristen watched this for a little while and gave this review: “Boring as F**k”.
A teacher (Mr. Hector played by the late Richard Griffiths) who teaches his students how to learn and how to think (rather than rote learning to pass a test, ala No Child Left Behind) is being asked to retire early because he allegedly groped a male student. A substitute teacher is brought in to start taking some of the teaching load from Mr. Hector. Unfortunately, he is a rote teacher who cannot see the value of Hector’s teaching philosophy.
The students are in a class destined to interview for admission to either Oxford or Cambridge. Smart kids. But also kids with normal problems dealing with life as a teenager.
“The History Boys” audio made it very hard to understand and, as such, it was hard to follow the story line. Lots of F-words. Not for kids.
The ending is shocking and heart-wrenching, so have tissue available.
