St Trinian's/St Trinian's 2 – The Legend Of Fritton's Gold [DVD]
Region 2. This DVD may not be viewable outside Europe.
Double bill of modern-day reworkings of classic Ealing comedies of the 1950s. In 'St Trinian's (2007), faced with dire financial problems, St.Trinian's, the school for 'young ladies', has to somehow find the extra cash needed, or face closure from the bank. If that wasn't enough, Headmistress Camilla Fritton's (Rupert Everett) old flame Geoffrey Thwaites (Colin Firth) is now Education Minister, and he's not too impressed with the ethos of 'self-empowerment' (anarchy) practised at the school. But faced with the loss of their school, the usually ferocious St.Trinians girls decide to put aside their differences and work together to raise the cash the only way they know – by pulling off the heist of the century. In the sequel 'St Trinian's 2' (2009) the mischief-making girls of St Trinian's are on the hunt for buried treasure after discovering that their headmistress Miss Fritton (Everett) is the descendant of a famous pirate. The film co-stars Gemma Arterton, Colin Firth, Jodie Whittaker, David Tennant, Tamsin Egerton and Russell Brand, among others.
