The Winslow Boy, Paperback Book
4 out of 5 (1 rating)


Just filmed by David Mamet, starring Nigel Hawthorne and Jeremy Northam, The Winslow Boy is based on the real-life court case of a young naval cadet unjustly accused of stealing a five shilling postal order.

An eminent-and initially unsympathetic-QC takes on the case, and the boy has to withstand the full might of the Royal Naval Establishment seeking to discredit him.

Review by

Wonderful story about a middle-class father's defense of his boy, against the might of English institutions. (I couldn't help but picture Rebecca Pidgeon as the sister - she was perfectly cast in David Mamet's movie version.)
