Miss G, I wanted to thank you for lending me the book.
Did you read it?
Did you get caught?
No. And anyway, I'm not sure what all the fuss is about. I wasn't corrupted.
Good for you. Let them put that in their pipes.

I came across this film out of desperation the other night...just wanting to watch something decent. What I found was a gem of a movie. I wasn't familiar with anyone in the cast except Eva Green from Dark Shadows, who I didn't really have an opinion of either way and I'm not a fan of boarding school movies of any sort, but I watched it anyway.
Eva Green, as Miss G, was completely captivating and I could picture myself having a school girl crush on her when I was in high school...or heck, maybe even now. Her character comes across as educated, well traveled and totally alluring in every way...until a Spanish transfer student comes to the school and she begins to unravel.
The film is beautifully shot and the music is a perfect compliment to it. I really can't wait to see what else Jordan Scott does next.
