The film comes from Terrence Rattigan’s play about a teacher at a British public school who is treated badly by everyone he knows, except for one young kid who sees in the teacher what everyone else overlooks. The film offers a stunning picture of characters who use manners and procedure to mask behaviors that are not physically violent, but unbelievably cruel. Michael Redgrave, as the teacher, gives one of the greatest film performances ever.
