Mad About the Boys...


On Saturday Stu, Sparky and I went to see the film of Alan Bennett's The History Boys. Part school days nostalgia trip, part gay-themed drama.

And boy did it bring back memories; being at a boys school, A-level results, gay teachers, 7th term Oxbridge entrance study, the pressure from the Head, the exam and the Oxbridge interview.

It's a great film and definitely recommended viewing. Hey, if a film can pull off a scene entirely in French, challenge you to sympathise with casual paedophilia, make you think and make you laugh it gets my vote.
