Should be on a double-feature venue: The Browning Version and Lindsay Anderson's [If]. It's idiosyncratically and very British; many Americans won't understand the subtext I suspect.

Wonderful Albert Finney! Top cast! A stunningly beautiful British film; there are two things in life most stressful;
moving and divorce! (headmaster says) and he could have added the end of one's career.
