The movie St Trinian is a cute comedy directed by Oliver Parker and Barnaby Thompson. St Trinian’s is actually the sixth in a long-running series (the first in 1954) of films based on the works of cartoonist Ronald Searle (whose cartoons are based on an experimental school that existed in England during the first half of the 20th century). But this latest St Trinian movie is definitely anchored in our time, with crazy teen girls who do as they want. The film is starring Mischa Barton, Rupert Everett, Colin Firth, Lena Headey, Caterina Murino, Stephen Fry, Jodie Whittaker, Celia Imrie, Anna Chancellor, Gemma Arterton, comedian Russell Brand and Toby Jones in the cast alongside model Lily Cole. U.K. pop act Girls Aloud who also take a turn in the picture.
Watch below the first official movie trailer of St trinian:
“St Trinian’s, the infamous school for ‘young ladies’ is once again facing dire financial crisis! The bank are threatening headmistress Camilla Fritton with closure. Her unorthodox doctrine of free expression and self empowerment is also under threat from new Education Minister Geoffrey Thwaits, an old flame of Camilla’s who is determined to bring discipline and order to the anarchic school.
In true St Trinian style the girls are in a league of their own; smart, fearless and determined to defend the school they love to the end. They need to unite the warring girl gang cliques and come up with the cash fast to save the school.”
That’s a dream school for kids maybe, but not sure they would learn enough there… Our world needs scientists! And women scientist too! I’d like to see science and scientists getting a better coverage from Hollywood, and a positive coverage please, not the usual mad scientist stereotype: I bet it would inspire kids to follow careers related to science. Anyway, I’m kind of digressing… And at the end I’ll still bring my daughter to go watch the movie St Trinian, we wouldn’t miss a good laugh after all.
The PG-13 comedy St Trinian will be released in select theaters on October 2, 2009.
