Synopsis

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.

What our educators say

"Some of them saw a clip from Wakolda (The German Doctor) on TV recently and really wanted to watch it. So I thought I’d take a chance, not expecting them to watch the whole film but the majority were absolutely gripped. "
