St. Trinian’s
Britain  2007, 97 min

Packed with madcap antics, explosive hi-jinks and Rupert Everett in a frock, St. Trinian’s follows a sassy group of bad girls as they try to save their boarding school from foreclosure.

Out actor Rupert Everett is reunited with Colin Firth (Mamma Mia!) for the first time since Another Country, in which they played gay lovers. In St. Trinian’s they do kiss again -- but as a man and a woman! Things are shook up when the new Minister of Education (Colin Firth) identifies St. Trinian’s as the “worst boarding school in the country”. The all-girl boarding school is the poster child for bad education with its eccentric headmistress, Camilla Fritton (a cross-dressing Rupert Everett in a dual role) and her unorthodox ways. Miss Fritton usually retreats to her private quarters with a nice gin cocktail while her devilish students, led by the posh Kelly (Gemma Arterton, Quantum of Solace) wreck the school, cheat at field hockey and terrorize the trembling new student Annabelle (Talulah Riley, Pride & Prejudice). All the frivolity is about to change, as the bank is threatening foreclosure. The girls (along with Mischa Barton) devise an outlandish plan to cheat their way to finals of the Scholastic Challenge, where they will steal Vermeer’s painting “The Girl with the Pearl Earring”. Pulling out all the stops, St. Trinian’s is a fabulously clever, camp remake of the classic British television series (that began in 1954 with The Belles of St Trinian’s) that will have you buckled over with laughter till the credits roll! -- Kelly Burkhardt
