Part of the Scotland Galore! Season
This Oscar©-winning classic - adapting Muriel Spark's original novel, which had previously been adapted for the stage by its screenwriter - is set in a private all-girls school in 1930s Edinburgh, where Maggie Smith’s headstrong, eccentric and charismatic teacher ignores the curriculum and influences her impressionable young charges with her romanticised world view and strident independence. But such openness and forthright idealism comes with a cost. Watching Ronald Neame's film in 2017 is a delight - a time capsule within a time capsule of Edinburgh.
