Martin Clunes admirably portrays Arthur Chipping, the Latin teacher at a private boys' school in England. Initially hired to teach the remainder of a term, the film follows him through the rest of his career, culminating with being given the job as headmaster of the school. Despite being somewhat of an odd duck and thus the brunt of snickers and jeers from the boys, Chipping stands up to the long-held tradition of hazing and has a fondness for boys who have been bullied. His marriage to the sweet Kathie is cut short by her death in childbirth. Later, he stands his ground when a new headmaster wants to make changes at the school, including taking on a military stance with training in arms for the young students. The forced resignation of a beloved teacher of German ancestry has Chipping taking on the headmaster in a verbal squirmish; despite being on the eve of WWI, Chipping refuses to consider that the teacher is a threat to the boys' education. I can't say enough about how much I enjoyed this movie. Martin Clunes shines. The artistry needed to change him from a young adult into a dying man in his 80s is to be commended as well.
