Eva Green, Juno Temple and Maria Valverde, who lead an ensemble cast in the movie Cracks, which marks the feature film directorial debut of Jordan Scott.

The film looks fantastic and as Jordan is the daughter of Ridley Scott and niece of Tony, this should not come as a surprise. The movie is based on Sheila Kohler’s novel about a teacher at a posh boarding school who drills her students in the nature of desire.

Ms Green oozes desire and so do a few of her girls. But when a new pupil from Spain arrives at the school, she doesn’t desire what it wishes to provide her with.

The girl is played by Ms Valverde and she’s terrific. She’s the one who spots the cracks in Ms Green’s reputation, but she has to pay a high price for what she unravels. The film’s playing at the Toronto International Film Festival this weekend and will be featured at the Times BFI London Film festival next month.
