"An impressive, sensual, erotically charged debut! A mesmerizing tale of infatuation, jealousy, and betryal."—BBC Radio Times
Cracks, the dazzling debut film from Jordan Scott (daughter of legendary director Ridley Scott), stars Eva Green (The Dreamers, Casino Royale) as Miss G, a glamorous force in an idyllic British boarding school. The school's most elite clique, led by Di (Juno Temple from Kaboom), rules the school and competes for the attention of Miss G, who thrives on the girls' fascination and eggs them on with lessons in a scandalously liberated world view. But, when a beautiful Spanish girl named Fiamma appears at the school, the girls are immediately threatened by the outsider's perfect allure. Even Miss G, who loved being the most glamorous presence in her girls' lives, becomes obsessed with, threatened, and tantalized by Fiamma.
An official selection at the Toronto and London Film Festivals, Cracks is an elaborate drama teeming with psycho-sexual intrigue, featuring a terrific young cast and a blistering performance from Eva Green. Coproduced by Christine Vachon. (99 mins., HD video)
