Watch The Winslow Boy

A family struggles to the clear their son's name in The Winslow Boy, a 1999 film directed by David Mamet. Based on a play of the same name and inspired by an historical event in Great Britain, the story is set in 1911 London. When 13 year old Ronnie Winslow is accused of theft and dismissed from Royal Naval College, his family goes to extreme lengths to clear his name, and their own, in court.

Arthur Winslow (Nigel Hawthorne), the boy's father, hires a famous barrister named Sir Robert Morton (Jeremy Northam). After meeting Ronnie and becoming convinced of the boy's innocence, Morton takes the case, which proves to be a difficult one. The family struggles, in the face of public media exposure and high legal bills, to stand united. Catherine Winslow (Gemma Jones), Ronnie's older sister and a blunt-speaking suffragette, finds herself reluctantly intrigued by Sir Morton, whose politics are so opposite her own but whose intelligence and skills are being used in the service of her brother's defense.
