It has been suggested by film reviewers alike as the Coen Brothers best fil to date, so having heard this only ten minutes before the film was due to start, made my expectations rocket into overdue. I am pleased to say that I was by no means short changed.
Charismatic, endearing, warming, sad, suprising... I could go on but this really did have it all. Very strong and memorable characters, transportation well aken to a different era.
In short, just go see it. Mazletov!!!

(A review from the Independent)
Faculty be warned: appoint Eva Green to the teaching staff and teenage hormones run riot. Here she comes as the pulchritudinous Miss G, eyes glittering through thick mascara, her cigarette cocked at a rakish angle, as she first bewitches the girls at a 1930s boarding school and then is in turn bewitched by a visiting Spanish temptress (María Valverde).
- Production year: 2009
- Countries: Ireland, Rest of the world, UK
- Cert (UK): 15
- Runtime: 104 mins
- Directors: Jordan Scott
- Cast: Eva Green, Imogen Poots, Juno Temple, Maria Valverde, Sinead Cusack
Set-up complete, Jordan (daughter of Ridley) Scott proceeds to whip up a flouncing gothic melodrama that is ravishing and risible in about equal measure. Cracks totters on high heels and strikes all manner of poses in the mirror. Sooner or later it's bound to fall over.

She has many different zombies
But she knows she has a curse on her,
the pins stick farther in.
