Term of Trial synopsis

A schoolteacher plagued by alcoholism and his refusal to serve in World War II, Graham Weir (Laurence Olivier) inspires contempt in almost everyone around him, including his bitter wife, Anna (Simone Signoret). When the lovely young Shirley Taylor (Sarah Miles), one of Weir's students, falls for her unfortunate instructor, he is tempted and flattered but turns down her advances. Taylor's subsequent actions make Weir's life even more complicated.
