Tom Brown's Schooldays
Just picked up a DVD of the excellent remake of Tom Brown's Schooldays with Stephen Fry as Arnold and Jemma Redgrave as his wife, Mary. There's a touching domestic scene in which Fry and Redgrave are sitting in bed sipping tea, illustrative of the formidable pedagogue's tender side. I'll wager my son Alexander is the only boy in Christendom to have seen his godmother in bed with Stephen Fry.
