Win 'The History Boys' on DVD ... TODAY!
The road to higher education is paved with good intentions as a group of brilliant, yet unruly British schoolboys pursue sex, sport and knowledge in 'The History Boys,' coming to DVD on April 17 from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment (TCFHE).
Nominated for four British Independent Film Awards including Best Actress (Frances de la Tour, Harry Potter And The Goblet Of Fire), Best Screenplay and two nods for Most Promising Newcomer (Samuel Barnett and Dominic Cooper), 'The History Boys' is based on the celebrated stage play that ran at the National Theatre in London from May 2004 until April 2005 and won more Tony Awards® than any other play in the past 50 years, including Best Featured Actress (de la Tour), Best Director (Nicholas Hytner), Best Leading Actor (Richard Griffiths) and Best Play.
A witty and complex coming-of-age tale in the venerable tradition of Dead Poets Society and Stand And Deliver, 'The History Boys' deftly balances the tragedy of youth’s shattered illusions with blazingly acerbic humor. Mentored by two teachers, an astute young teaching novice and an insightful old eccentric, and watched by a results-obsessed headmaster, eight working class boys share one seemingly impossible dream: to gain admittance into England’s most exclusive and prestigious universities.
'The History Boys' DVD features the film in widescreen only, as well as two behind-the-scenes DVD featurettes and audio commentary by Director Nicolas Hytner and esteemed Playwright and Screenwriter Alan Bennett.
