Watch the Movie Young Winston on Sterile Young Winston
William Manchester writes about this movie: “Sterile, devoid of genuine conflict, tacitly
endorsing nineteenth-century imperialism, the movie rolls along like a well-made Pinero play*,
occasionally hitting us over the head with thudding reminders of the towering figure our hero
will someday become, all unaccompanied by any explanation of why. […] It’s entertaining,
relaxing, and inoffensive – and perhaps we should settle for that. But […] one had hoped for
more.” Do you find this assessment to be fair and accurate? Why or why not?
Arthur Wing Pinero (1855-1934) wrote conventional, old-fashioned plays.
