Stephen Fry, Jemma Redgrave, Joseph Beattie, and Alex Pettyfer star in director Dave Moore's adaptation of Thomas Hughes' timeless coming of age tale. The time is the mid-1800s, and Tom Brown is a timid student at Rugby Public School. Confronted with relentless bullying, the homesick schoolboy makes the transformation into a courageous student who isn't afraid to face life's obstacles by confronting his fears, standing up for what's right, and fighting to overcome the many pratfalls of adolescence. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Audience Reviews for Tom Brown's Schooldays

I enjoyed this story of a boy learning to survive being bullied at an English public school. Alex Pettyfer, who plays Tom, was lovely, and it was great to see Jemma Redgrave again, though, I wish her character could've been a bit more developed. This is based on a British book I've never read; though, I remember seeing a black & white film from the 30's years back.

It's Stephen Fry bad can it be? I found it quite enjoyable though it seemed a little short. I read the book nor have i seen the original black and white film but i liked this. It's a bunch of boys getting into situations. Fun.I mean seriously, you could get a solid hour of entertainment just by staring at the kid's hair.

A BBC film about boarding school bullies, very Charles Dickens. Alex Pettyfer did fantastic considering that this was his first film.
