About the Movie

"One of Albert Finney's greatest performances... Sweeping, lavish and beautiful." --Jeffrey Lyons, Sneak Previews. Dead Poet's Society. Stand and Deliver. Film fans fondly recall them as tales of a teacher who inspires his students. The Browning Version is the memorable story of a student who inspires his brilliant yet beleaguered and unappreciated teacher. Albert Finney, Matthew Modine and Greta Scacchi star in this richly layered work of truth, tears and triumph. In a widely acclaimed performance, Finney plays a brilliant but stern classics instructor at a posh prep school who is forced out of his job and into the realization that he is despised in the classroom...and at home. Suddenly, the proud academic is adrift...until one student's profound act of kindness gives him the inspiration and courage to build his life anew.

Beautiful film

Watch it, Finney is great!

A Standout

Deeply reflective of real life. A poignant depiction of a man coming to terms with lifelong misconceptions too late to correct them and begin again. Finney is brilliant.

Watch the original with Michael Redgrave...

The original 1951 version of this film is the one to watch. Michael Redgrave turns in a once in a lifetime performance.
