Mary D. Events hosts a Women’s Reception prior to the screening of the film, CRACKS, an official selection of the Toronto and London BFI Film Festivals. Crushes, “cracks” in British slang, and jealousies are the ruling passions of this beautifully realized debut film from Jordan Scott, daughter of the legendary director Ridley Scott. Set in a 1930s-era isolated English all-girls boarding school on the eve of WWII, CRACKS starts “Bond-girl” Eva Green in a blistering performance as “Miss G,” a glamorous teacher who is idolized as the coach of the cliquish student diving team. When she suddenly turns her attention to a beautiful, new teen from Spain, all bets are off. The film evokes a by-gone era as well as the very real erotic and emotional tensions between young women of any decade.
There will be additional screenings of CRACKS through June 16th.
