This is a black and white period film that tells the stories of a young man who attends a British boarding school and the headmaster who teaches him some valuable lessons. Bullying is rampant at the school, and Tom Brown, a new student is receiving more than his share of punishment from some of the older boys. When Dr. Thomas Arnold, the school’s new headmaster, becomes aware of this, he instructs his most senior pupils to set a new course and end the bullying once and for all. Along the way, young Tom and the rest of the students learn how to be “courageous, God-fearing gentlemen.”
We are pleased to award our Dove Seal for all ages to this fine and inspiring movie.
