  1. João Rocha's rating of the film The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie

    What a picturesque lady, what a outstanding performance :o

  2. Samuel Andrade's rating of the film The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie

  3. Richmond Hill's rating of the film The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie

    A rather muted take on Spark which by centring on a mannered performance by Smith tends to destabilise the rest of the film with a series of camp flourishes rather than any particular insight into this silly woman's naive politics. Johnson's stoically stern headmistress is a small treat.

  4. Erik F.'s rating of the film The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie

    See it for Maggie Smith. Otherwise just read Muriel Spark's novel.

  5. Nathan Grey Hollis's rating of the film The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie

    Wonderful performance from Maggie Smith!

  6. Christopher McQuain's rating of the film The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie

    ***1/2 Much more disturbing and trenchant than I'd imagined, but the movie's power is somewhat undermined, its perspective falsely slanted a bit, by Star Power.

  7. noah's rating of the film The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie

  8. Cinema Omnivore's rating of the film The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie

    an idealistic teacher's life of irony, an 8/10 my review: http://lasttimeisawdotcom.wordpress.com/2012/07/26/last-film-i-saw-the-prime-of-miss-jean-brodie/

  9. Ingrid Bergman's rating of the film The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie

    While Maggie Smith's portrayal of Jean Brodie is nothing short of amazing, I was repulsed by the character herself and could not empathize with her at all.

  10. Pedro Franceschini's rating of the film The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie

    I was really surprised by this movie... at first it looked something like an ancient "Dead Poets Society" (which, by the way, is not a great compliment). But then the movie takes a more interesting turn and the relations between teachers and students become more complex: not just admiration, not just hate (it reminded me of "Cracks"). Great perfomances!

  11. CCLZA's rating of the film The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie

    Maggie Smith is impressive in this: insightful, tender, hilarious and always standing still. A once in a lifetime, flawed character for her in a witty film by Neame.

  12. C.B.L.S's rating of the film The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie

    Maggie Smith, as the idealistic school teacher Jean Brodie simply delievers one of the greatest performances ever captured on film.
