Audience Reviews for The Winslow Boy

Super Reviewer

Good period drama if a bit studied. The performances couldn't be better though.

Interesting period piece family portrait. Did the boy steal the money? The Winslow family goes through a lot. There are no easy answers. Interesting characterizations by all involved. They were begging for Oscars methinks.
