| a fantastic film! one of the best
This film depicts the change of britain through the use of a public school as a metaphor. The films shows the changing views of class distinction, the idea of a devloping society and the view of change through the flemming report.

The guinea pig tells show class in britain in the 1940s changes as the result of the changing attitudes due to the second world war, now working class people are having the chance to develop in the clasist world as read does at the end of the film.

The film shows the different attitudes from the traditionalist housemaster hartley to the new tutor Lorraine who wants to develop the new society and to bring equality to those who needed it.

I recommend this film not just for entertainment value but also for the significance it represents in the history of britain in the 1940s, the after-effects of the second world war and the development of a new society.

ENJOY!
