Who knew that f#%k-spewing David Mamet could pull off English period drama?

The Winslow Boy (1999)a thinly veiled love letter from director Mamet to his wife, Rebecca Pidgeonis the story of seemingly lost causes: the acquittal of the titular boy in a case of theft, women’s suffrage, and a chauvinist’s love for a feminist. The cast features many a rock-solid English actor, including Nigel Hawthorne and the splendiferous Gemma Jones.
