A portrait of the broken lives of four people (a vigilante detective, a worried parent, an awkward man looking for love and a suicidal artist) as they all struggle to cope in their religiously-dystopian city.
In 1870s America, the fury of a notorious gang leader is unleashed when a peaceful American settler avenges the death of his family. Then as his cowardly fellow townspeople betray him, he is forced to hunt down the outlaws alone.
Jeffrey Dean Morgan
At an elite girls boarding school, the award winning diving team is considered the premier group of girls in the school. When a new girl from Spain, Fiamma, comes to the school and joins the team, the rest of the squad is jealous of her relationship with the coach and force her off the team and out of the school by bullying her. When the girl is forced to rejoin the group, they decide to let her into their social circle and begin to be as fascinated with her as their coach is. But things take a turn when the coach's fascination turns into a physical relationship between Fiamma and herself.Written by

One of the girls does her impression of Long John Silver from Treasure Island. Her impression is based on Robert Newton's distinct performance from Disney's 1950 film adaptation, yet Cracks takes place in 1934. It should also be noted that characters in pirate movies did not start talking that way until Robert Newton played Long John Silver. See more »
Miss G, I wanted to thank you for lending me the book.
Did you read it?
Did you get caught?
No. And anyway, I'm not sure what all the fuss is about. I wasn't corrupted.
Good for you. Let them put that in their pipes.

A very, very dark version of "Dead Poet's Society" set in an all girls school. Not bad, but was hoping for better. I say B-
"Let nothing hold you back except the air itself. You are between heaven and earth. The rules no longer apply." A teacher (Green) at a boarding school for girls tries to teach them about real life. When a new girl arrives at the school and takes Miss G's (Green) attention from her, Di (Temple) becomes jealous. This is a movie that drags a little, but is still very good. Eva Green's performance alone is worth watching this for. The entire movie she keeps you guessing as to what kind of person she is. Just when you think she is helping the girls, something changes and you are not sure anymore. I would compare this to "Dead Poet's Society", but a darker version of that movie. I did enjoy this but again, it is pretty slow in parts but it is worth it to stay with it until the end. Overall, this is a good movie, but not for everyone. A very dark British version of "Dead Poet's Society" for girls. I give it a B-.
Would I watch again? - I don't think I will.
