From award-winning playwright Alan Bennett ("The Madness of King George") comes this delightfully witty comedy of eight boisterous-yet-talented schoolboys hoping to gain admittance to England's most prestigious universities. They're aided on their quest by two teachers, a shrewd young upstart and an inspiring old eccentric, whose opposing philosophies challenge the boys to confront the true meaning of education and the relative values of happiness and success. Adapted from the original Tony Award winning play and starring the original Tony Award winning cast, "The History Boys" is an engaging, thought-provoking, and wickedly funny look at history, the pursuit of knowledge, and the utter randomness of life.
Audio commentary with director Nicholas Hytner and writer Alan Bennett, History Boys around the World: Tour Diaries featurette, Pass It On: The History Boys on Screen featurette.
