What Is the Story of The Winslow Boy?
The Winslow Boy tells the story of a British family at the turn of the 20th century: intimidating father Arthur Winslow; gentle mother Grace; hard-headed daughter Catherine; dimwitted brother Dickie; and young son Ronnie. When Ronnie is expelled from his naval academy after being accused of stealing a five-shilling postal order, Arthur launches a quest to clear the boy’s name. The legal battle isn’t easy, though, and it comes at a great cost to the family, who question how far Arthur is willing to go to prove Ronnie’s innocence—and whether it’s all worth it.
