Richard Attenborough makes light of his 20-odd years to play a boy half his age in this class-barrier melodrama that’s as predictable and reassuring as a school-dinner menu. Accepted by a top public school as part of an educational experiment, working-class Attenborough endures the teasing of classmates and family with practised angst as he passes from victim to insider with the help of teacher Robert Flemyng.
