The History Boys
An unruly bunch of bright, funny sixth-form boys in pursuit of sex, sport and a place at university. A maverick English teacher at odds with the young and shrewd supply teacher; a headmaster obsessed with results; a history teacher who thinks he's a fool. Staff-room rivalry and the anarchy of adolescence provoke insistent questions about history and how you teach it; about education and its purpose.
The History Boys , the screenplay, contains Alan Bennett's diary of the filming, the shooting script and an introduction by director, Nicholas Hytner, as well as an extensive plate section showing stills from the film and behind the scenes.
