The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie at Filmhouse
April 5 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm£4.50 - £10
STILL FROM RONALD NEAME’S THE PRIME OF MISS JEAN BRODIE (1969)
Come to Filmhouse to (re)discover the 1969 classic The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie. This Oscar©-winning classic – adapting Muriel Spark’s original novel, which had previously been adapted for the stage by its screenwriter – is set in a private all-girls school in 1930s Edinburgh, where Maggie Smith’s headstrong, eccentric and charismatic teacher ignores the curriculum and influences her impressionable young charges with her romanticised world view and strident independence. But such openness and forthright idealism comes with a cost. Watching Ronald Neame’s film in 2017 is a delight – a time capsule within a time capsule of Edinburgh.
Two screenings will be available on 5 April: 1pm and 6pm. The 6pm screening will be introduced by Dr Alistair Braidwood who has written widely on Scottish literature and film, and runs the Scottish cultural website Scots Whay Hae!.
