Movie Info

Jean Brodie (Maggie Smith) is a free-spirited teacher at a Scottish girls' school during the 1930s. She encourages her young pupils to embrace romantic ideals, educating them about love and art rather than hard facts. However, her controversial teaching philosophy draws the ire of the school's headmistress, Miss Mackey (Celia Johnson), and, as Miss Brodie becomes entangled in a love triangle, her behavior towards her favorite students becomes increasingly manipulative.

    Interesting how Maggie Smith got into the older roles at such a young age. She gives a wonderful and memorable performance every time out though.

    I hope Maggie Smith isn't crestfallen to have me say "wow, I didn't realize she WAS so beautiful," but she was definitely a beauty in this movie. Not that she isn't now, but there are no qualifiers on the younger her. Her acting and sheer presence carried the movie which was rather ruderless--although I guess we were waiting to see when she would get the az and I loved hearing everyone's Scottish brogues....mai leetle gels. Indeed!

    It's a lot like Mona Lisa Smile; only far better.

    The movie cleverly examines the dark side of the inspirational teacher narrative but more importantly, it exposes the dangers of simply embracing modernity for its own sake. Also, Smith is perfection in this.
