I’ve always been guilty of romanticising all-male boarding schools; especially those shown in periods further down in history…I mean it’s basically a slash fan’s dream right? Hoards of teenage boys within close proximity of each other, delicious sexual tension, lack of female companionship…all that stuff.
But this film is just unnerving…and probably showing what it was really like. The last film I saw about this topic was “Another Country” but that had Rupert Everett being caned, and as much as I felt sorry for his character the caning scene was pretty freaking hot.
It didn’t help that the school in that film looked pretty pristine, but the school in “if…” looks a lot more grimy. There is sexual tension, yes, but it is vicious and predatory….
But, really, apologies to any guy who went to a British boarding school in the 60’s.
but those prefects are hella cute
but i saw too many damn white boy asses in the shower
so many pasty asses
I’ve only seen like 30 mins of the film so far…but it is nearly 1 am, so I better go to bed. I’ll watch the rest tomorrow.
