Finney plays a brilliant but stern classics instructor at a posh prep
school who is forced out of his job and into the realization that he is
despised in the classroom…and at home.
Nominated for Best Screenplay at the BAFTA Awards. Nominated for the Palme d’Or at the Cannes Film Festival.
“Finney is a master of letting us glimpse the bruised heart of a
man like Andrew Crocker-Harris, who has used his devotion to the
classics to bury his own identity.” – Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly
