This 1994 release is a high-class tear-jerker, Albert Finney (pictured) is Andrew Crocker-Harris, the classics professor at a posh British boys' school. Its core relationship is not the professor's sour marriage to a younger woman (Greta Scacchi, pictured) but rather between Crocker-Harris and Taplow (Ben Silverstone), a student who--realizing what a hated reputation his teacher has with his classmates--warms up to him anyway (Cinemax early Tuesday at 5:15 a.m.).
