The History Boys

The other day we watched Alan Bennett’s The History Boys. Normally I love Alan Bennett's wit, and sharp observations, but this was an odd mixture of romanticised sixth formers, as they may have been in the late nineteen fifties, but with nineties dialogue and attitudes, and 2nd year undergrad cleverness. Harry hated it – I got more involved but couldn’t believe the characters.
