When I heard that the remake of St Trinians was going to be a 'revamp' for the 21st century...I cringed.
Much luck though; it has not been cheapened or ruined at all. The same tongue in cheekiness is there, in the same camp Ealing studios style...the plot has been changed to include 'Chavs' and 'Emos' to incorporate the modern british school mentality.
Rupert Everett made sure the film stayed tongue-in-cheek with his drag act of the headmistress Miss Fritton, not played wackily or over the top; but as a slightly essentric, middle class spinster.
The girls are still up to their old tricks, fermenting their own alcohol, cheating at hocky and plotting a heist.
I definately recommend this film; it might be a bit too british in places for the foreign to grab, it is very colloquial in places. In my opinion though it is the best British film made in a very long time; and for once it was actually British, lottery funded, Ealing studios and no token american in it for sales.
