Cinemanic Monday: "We're going to be great friends, you and I."

   After hearing about it from a friend I rented Cracks (2009) and I really enjoyed it. Quite sad but the imagery was stunning and the performances by Eva Green, Juno Temple and MarĂ­a Valverde were amazing. It's Jordan Scott's directorial debut. Daughter of Ridley Scott. 
Eva Green plays Miss G, the swim coach for a girls' boarding school and her girls look up to her kind of like a big sister. She tells them these elaborate stories of her exciting life and travels. Di (Temple), in particular, is very fond of her. Miss G and the girls all have a perfect existence until Fiamma (Valverde), the Spanish aristocrat, shows up. Miss G becomes infatuated with her and the girls hate her for it. It really reminded of The Lord of the Flies but with pretty British girls. 
This was my favorite scene when the girls have a Midnight Feast and play dress up and drink wine. 
Miss G's clothes were amazing! She has some friends at Christian Dior so a lot of them were on loan for the film.

  1. I really want to see this! Never heard of it before but it looks awesome (at least from the pics). Plus I'm really beginning to love Eva Green and all the outfits look lovely! <3
