Cracks (2009)

Cracks (2009)

Genre: Drama
Director: Jordan Scott
Starring: Eva Green, Juno Temple, Maria Valverde
Duration: 104 min.
Rating: 6.3/10

Within the confines of a strict, all-girls English boarding school, a clique of students participate on the diving team not only to pass the time, but to be close to their swimming instructor, the enigmatic, yet charismatic, Miss G.


Cracks the debut feature from Jordan Scott, is based on a novel by Sheila Kohler.  It is a beautifully composed film, with a great atmosphere and setting.  The costumes were excellent, especially those of lead actress Eva Green, dressed wonderfully glamorously throughout the entire film.  However incredible the film was to look at, the story was just not captivating enough, and the strength of the rest of the young cast was average at best.

I must admit I do like Eva Green but this would not be for me I think.

I'm not sure a movie about a all girls school would interest me that much. At least, not if it's remotely realistic. Sexual segregation makes me raeg.
