The Winslow Boy might be triumph of style over substance, but sometimes, like in this case, style is what separates good from bad films.

Though Mamet has reshaped the material somewhat, this is still one of his more straightforward works; anyone expecting the twists and turns of previous Mamet movies such as 'House of Games' or 'The Spanish Prisoner' may feel slightly short-changed.

Well-made play that it is, The Winslow Boy still has the capacity to engage both the mind and the heart.

Good period drama if a bit studied. The performances couldn't be better though.

Too much action, away from the action, but the cast and dialog are quite good.

Interesting period piece family portrait. Did the boy steal the money? The Winslow family goes through a lot. There are no easy answers. Interesting… More
