      Audience Member Not bad. It's well acted - Fry is very good - but very abusive of Hughes' original book. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/30/23 Full Review Audience Member I enjoyed this story of a boy learning to survive being bullied at an English public school. Alex Pettyfer, who plays Tom, was lovely, and it was great to see Jemma Redgrave again, though, I wish her character could've been a bit more developed. This is based on a British book I've never read; though, I remember seeing a black & white film from the 30's years back. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/07/23 Full Review Audience Member For a made for tv movie this film is excellent. The kids do an amazing job at depicting the fun and horror they experienced at a public school at the dawn of the 'Arnold era.' It veers from the book quite a bit in places, but the plot flows nicely with the changes and won't leave viewers disappointed. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/13/23 Full Review Audience Member It's Stephen Fry bad can it be? I found it quite enjoyable though it seemed a little short. I read the book nor have i seen the original black and white film but i liked this. It's a bunch of boys getting into situations. Fun.I mean seriously, you could get a solid hour of entertainment just by staring at the kid's hair. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/13/23 Full Review Audience Member Poorly directed. Couldn't sit through it. Art Direction beautiful though. May rent it again later... Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/23/23 Full Review Audience Member LOVE IT AND OWN IT!!!
