Stephen Fry, Jemma Redgrave, Joseph Beattie, and Alex Pettyfer star in director Dave Moore's adaptation of Thomas Hughes' timeless coming of age tale. The time is the mid-1800s, and Tom Brown is a timid student at Rugby Public School. Confronted with relentless bullying, the homesick schoolboy makes the transformation into a courageous student who isn't afraid to face life's obstacles by confronting his fears, standing up for what's right, and fighting to overcome the many pratfalls of adolescence.
