Based on the novel by Evelyn Waugh
Paul Pennyfeather, a dedicated divinity student set upon a quiet life of
contemplation as a priest, is unceremoniously expelled from Oxford University
through no fault of his own. This kick-starts a series of disastrous events that
no-one, least of all Paul, could have anticipated.
Without a private fortune to fall back on, Paul is forced to take a position as a teacher at a substandard boarding school in rural Wales. All too quickly it becomes apparent that Paul is not a natural disciplinarian. He finds scant comfort in drinking – to excess – with the other teachers.
Things start to look up, however, when Paul meets Margot Beste-Chetwynde, a wealthy widow and a mother to one of the boys at the school. Could it be that the attraction Paul feels for Margot is returned? Could his fortunes be changing?
