  • While the film doesn't have much new to say about the link between low income and low achievement...the directors paint a vivid portrait of the school and leave you wondering what will become of fiery young Harry.

  • You can imagine this being made into a warm-hearted Britflick with a punch-the-air ending as Harry aces GCSE English. The reality is tougher.

  • H is for Harry is a slice-of-life film, a response to the triumphant Hollywood narratives of student-teacher feel-good stories that make everything look easy. It's hopeful but also humbling.
