Arthur Winslow and Sir Robert Morton are as ruthless in their way as the real estate salesmen in Mamet's Glengarry Glen Ross are in theirs...

The filmmaking seems to be stuck in 1912.

The Winslow Boy might be triumph of style over substance, but sometimes, like in this case, style is what separates good from bad films.

...for all the craft and care evident in Mamet's movie, it still is a rather bloodless affair, more admirable than engaging.

A thought-provoking and ethically charged tour de force based on Terence Rattigan's 1946 play.

You might have to wait a long time before you find a film with both a family and a lawyer portrayed in such a genuine and likable way.

Well-made play that it is, The Winslow Boy still has the capacity to engage both the mind and the heart.
Arthur Lazere

Intelligent characters, fully rounded characterizations, and a first rate group of actors playing with subtlety and charm.

Though Mamet has reshaped the material somewhat, this is still one of his more straightforward works; anyone expecting the twists and turns of previous Mamet movies such as 'House of Games' or 'The Spanish Prisoner' may feel slightly short-changed.
