A glimpse into the lives of a group of girls attending an elite boarding school... the jealousy, lust and anger that ensues when new girl Fiamma comes to join their ranks
Imagine a heady mix of The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie and Lord of the Flies, with a dash of Maidens in Uniform, and you’ll have some idea of the febrile mood of this sensual boarding school melodrama set in 1930s England, the confident directing debut of Jordan Scott (daughter of Ridley). Eva Green (best known as Casino Royale’s Vesper Lynd) stars as the charismatic Miss G, the dashing teacher who coaches the school’s swimming team, a self-appointed elite headed by Juno Temple’s Di. Miss G spellbinds her teenage charges with her tales of exotic travel, wilfully encouraging their crushes, but her poise is shaken when an outsider, beautiful aristocratic Spanish pupil Fiamma (María Valverde), joins the school and upsets the fragile status quo.
Released on 29th March.
