Tom Brown (Alex Pettyfer) is energetic, stubborn, kind-hearted, and athletic more than intellectual. He acts according to his feelings and the unwritten rules of the boys around him more than adults' rules.
The film deals with his years at the elite public school for boys Rugby School. His year starts when he goes to Rugby School, where he becomes acquainted with the adults and boys who live at the school and in its environs.
On his arrival, the 13-year-old Tom Brown is looked after by a more experienced classmate, Harry "Scud" East (Harry Michell). Soon after, Tom and East become the targets of a bully named Flashman (Joseph Beattie).
The intensity of the bullying increases, and, after refusing to hand over a sweepstake ticket for the favorite in a horse race, Tom is deliberately burned in front of a fire. Tom and Scud stop Flashman's bullying when Flashman is expelled after a fight with Tom in which he used brass knuckles.
Tom Brown's Schoolday's was met positively by the critics. It was called "a flash of evil genius" by The Daily Express, "one of the best TV adaptations of an English classic I have seen" by The Daily Mail; The Radio Times said that "viewers of every political colour will find much to delight them in Tom Brown's Schooldays", and The Hollywood Reporter said that "this new Tom Brown turns out to be an outstanding family viewing experience".
