    I saw this randomly on ITV last Saturday afternoon and bloody enjoyed it.

    I think it's what made Maggie Smith famous.

    HAS ANYONE ELSE SEEN THIS? If so they should.

    Have it on DVD and love it. Keep an eye out for a very young Gail from Corrie as one of the schoolgirls. Superb performance from Maggie Smith and well deserving of the Oscar. 9/10

    Fascinating film. Would have been a 10, but I find it drags a bit when she continues to try to whore out her pupil to the art teacher.

    I live right around the corner from where the outside of "Marcia Blaine's" was filmed.

    I thought it was very good. I think certain elements were lost because it would've been difficult to replicate the book structurally, but Maggie Smith was amazing and I thought the scene between Miss Brodie and Sandy at the end was a great addition.

    I can't say I loved it, but it was definitely interesting. Wonderful character and performance from Maggie.
