Cracks (2009) short review

If the idea of a psychological thriller set in a pre-war English boarding school sounds as good to you as it does to me, you’re really going to like this. A delicate balance between Eva Green as the diving coach and a group of young female students, led by Juno Temple in a mesmerizing performance, is upset by the arrival of a new girl from Spain.  I don’t want to give anything away! Most of the girls wear typical boarding school uniforms. Eva Green is “artsy” and so has a very lovely wardrobe.
