Drama ► The Hartridge School for Boys and Girls is a school nestled away in the British country side for children who are seen as ‘difficult’ and 'disobedient’. The teachers are stern, the days rigorous, and the children often become copies of one another, frightened and lonely.
When a new history teacher is appointed, the children expect someone just like the others. However over the course of a term, Mr. Hendrix (Benedict Cumberbatch) proves himself to be different, allowing the students to express themselves and inspiring them to learn. Most importantly, he listens. But as the children begin to reveal themselves, Mr. Hendrix must fight to conceal his demons.
