2009 TIFF movie seven, Cracks

So on my third day of TIFF my first movie was Cracks.  This was my second day in a row of starting with a British movie about girls in a private school after yesterday’s An Education.

However, the two movies are really different movies.  An Education is really about Jenny and her search for life experiences and a meaning in life.  While Cracks has that element the search for the exotic and interesting, it is as much about the needs of people and the dynamics of a boarding school team.

My friend Chris saw the movie on Friday, he was a bit perplexed about the description from the Programme Guide (link above).  He checked it, and they leave some big parts of the movie and plot line out of it.  So if you read the description, don’t expect to know everything that is going to happen.  Yes, Fiamma disrupts the social order of the team she joins, and also has a huge impact on Miss G, played by Eva Green’s, life.  But there is much more to this movie than just that.

This is a picture of director Jordan Scott:

I highly recommend it, although I would go see An Education first, but I am not sure when you would get to see it as IMDB only lists it as coming out in the UK on December 4, and France December 30.  If it truely going to get an Oscar push from US studios, it will probably be out in Los Angeles and New York before the New Year to be considered and out in wide release in either late December or January.
