David Mamet's brilliant adaptation of the THE WINSLOW BOY is a rich and complex telling of the British classic, brought to life by a superior ensemble of talent. The story follows the lives of the Winslows, a banker's family living in turn-of-the-century London, as they fight to prove the innocence of their youngest son accused of theft. After Sir Robert Morton, a respected lawyer, agrees to represent the boy, the case becomes a national spectacle and threatens to erode the family's bond. But, even as the legal circus engulfs the Winslows' lives, self-discovery and blossoming romance round out this period masterpiece filled with shimmering hope, wit and humanity.
