Exclusive preview of new Eva Green film ‘Cracks’
Thursday 19 November 2009
Watch an exclusive extract from new Eva Green film ‘Cracks’ ahead of its release this December.
The film is set at an elite girls’ boarding school circa 1930s where the ‘in crowd’ is made up of the frightfully British diving team: Di, Lily, Poppy, Laurel, Rosie and Fuzzy.
It is a tale of sexual and sporting rivalry, bulling and manipulation predicated on the girls’ passion for their teacher, the glamorous Miss G (Eva Green), upon whom they lavish attention and who in turn teaches them more than just their lessons.
The superficially calm surface of the teenagers' daily life is interrupted by the arrival of a new pupil, the exotic and beautiful Fiamma, in whom Miss G takes an immediate interest.
The girls are fiercely jealous of Fiamma and, led by former favourite Di, exact a campaign of bullying against her. The girls’ anger and the repressive wall of tension that builds over the school year erupts during a high spirited midnight party, with shocking consequences.
In cinemas from December the 4th 2009. Click on the video box below to launch.
