South Riding (2011) short review

A sad yet heartening story of a young woman in the 1930s who returns to her home in Yorkshire to become the headmistress of a girls’ school. She works to inspire the students to greater achievements and has some romantic and personal complications. Anna Maxwell Martin is a really talented actress, and she has some surprisingly smart outfits!
