Plot Description: An unruly bunch of bright, funny boys in their final year at a British boarding school are (as such boys will be) in pursuit of sex, sport, and a place at a good university — generally in that order. In all their efforts, they are helped and hindered, enlightened and bemused, by a maverick English teacher who seeks to broaden their horizons in sometimes undefined ways, and by a young history teacher who questions the methods, as well as the aim, of their schooling.
