Nigel Hawthorne's performance as the lawyer was absolutely exceptional. I was well interested in the movie's story up to his appearance, but his characterization took "The Winslow Boy" to another level. A fine drama.
A court room drama without the court. If you like dialogue this is for you. Well worth the effort.
