Welcome to Reel Britannia-a very British podcast about very British films....with the occasional hint of professionalism.
Episode 051 – The Prime Of Miss Jean Brodie (1969)
“Six inches is perfectly adequate. More is vulgar!’’
Join Scott and Steven for their 50th movie review…..
Jean Brodie (Maggie Smith) is a free-spirited teacher at a Scottish girls' school during the 1930s. She encourages her young pupils to embrace romantic ideals, educating them about love and art rather than hard facts. However, her controversial teaching philosophy draws the ire of the school's headmistress, Miss Mackey (Celia Johnson), and, as Miss Brodie becomes entangled in a love triangle, her behaviour towards her favourite students becomes increasingly manipulative.
