I was at a friend's house yesterday and browsing through their DVDs I noticed this newspaper freebie. I'd never heard of it before but as soon as I read the plot outline knew I had to watch it. So I did, and have to say I thought it was very enjoyable - good performances from younger Rupert Everett and Colin Firth. Interesting look at 1930s public school life, and it does make you think about the questions it raises. Although I do agree with the criticisms levelled at the director, and I thought he perhaps wasn't brave enough to show overt displays of affection between the pair? Bearing in mind it was 1984, I suppose he was courageous enough to make the film.

Anyone else have any views on the film?
