Director: Jordan Scott
Cast: Eva Green, Maria Valevrde, Juno Temple
We are in Miss Jean Brodie territory with this simmering sexual drama set in a 1930s girls’ school where the object of lust is teacher Miss G (Green) who runs the swim team, more swooning than swimming.
Di (Temple) has a massive crush on Miss but the arrival of a beautiful Spanish student (Valeverde) is the fly in the ointment, setting off all manner of dangerous currents.
Lots of hot flushes and several outstanding performances – Green in particular – but it’s all rather emotionally overloaded.
Star Rating: 4/5
