The last movie i’ve watched was St Trinian’s.
St Trinian’s is a boarding school for young ladies. It’s quite anarchistic and almost bankrupt.
The new Minister of Education, Geoffrey Thwaites, (Colin Firth) will bring it down, but he doesn’t realize that the headmistress Ms Fritton(Rupert Everett) is his old love.
That brings the best dialoge between those to, when they meet for the first time since ever:
Ms Fritton: Another Time…..
Geoffrey: Another Country….
It’s hilarious, because Firth can’t almost hold a straight face.
(At this point I recommend “Another Country”. This Movie from ’84 based on the live of Guy Burgess and is a masterpiece.)
The movie starts when Annabelle Fritton being admitted to the school. She’s quite snotty and thinks she doesn’t belong there. Anabelle meets the head girl and get introduced to the different groups and cliques.
After a few hard days she overhears, when her father Mr Fritton (Ms Frittons Brother and also played by Rupert Everett) speak about how he thinks Annabel doesn't fit in with the family.
Later that day Mrs Fritton talks to Annabel and makes her a part of the family and the school and gets her to release her anger.
Meanwhile Geoffrey Thwaites is inspecting the school and the bank is threatening the school with closure.
The student body learns abot the financial situation and the threat of closing the school.
They plotting to steal the painting “The girl with a pearl earring” during the finals of "School Challenge" and sells it to Annabelles father.
They succeed, but Mr Fritton gets a copy, while the real one which has been returned under the cover of St Trinians finding it.
They get the reward and save the school.
Great Movie and Colin gets wet again.
