Coming of Age, Drama
Like the similarly themed Dead Poets Society and Mona Lisa Smile, this drama concerns a charismatic teacher who exerts a powerful influence over their students. Maggie Smith stars as the eccentric but inspirational Scots schoolmistress Jean Brodie, a woman who avoids any sort of curriculum in favour of what she feels her young female charges should know about life. Outside of class, a small group of girls compete for her favour, but their initial devotion eventually leads to jealousies, betrayal and tragedy.
The arrival of an unorthodox, inspiring teacher to a conservative '50s boarding school has a huge, controversial impact in this famed, touching drama.
