This title will only be released in the UK on R2 (DVD and Blu-ray) on March 29, 2010, but you can already pre-order it from Amazon.co.uk.
A teacher who prides herself on being different meets a student who matches her non-conformist nature in this period drama. It’s 1934, and Miss G (Eva Green) is a teacher at a private school for girls near the Eastern coastline of England. While most of the teachers at the school are severe and straight-laced women who reinforce its reputation as a repressive environment, Miss G is more youthful and glamorous than her colleagues, and enjoys dropping hints of a free-spirited past to her young charges. Miss G encourages her students to challenge conventional norms of the day, and organizes a diving team at the school that she oversees with great interest. Miss G also sees a danger in the cliques that dominate the school, and she tries to undermine them, much to the annoyance of Di (Juno Temple), who hold a high place in the school’s pecking order. But things change for both Miss G and her students when Fiamma (Maria Valverde) enrolls at the school. Fiamma is from Spain and has a strong independent streak; she doesn’t look to her peers for approval and insists on doing things her own way, which makes her all the more exotic and appealing to the other students. Fiamma also earns the approval of Miss G, but before long rumors begin to spread that the teacher’s interest in her new student is more than academic. CRACKS was the first feature film from director Jordan Scott, whose father is the noted filmmaker Ridley Scott.

‘Casino Royale’ actress Eva Green says fans are constantly asking her questions about Daniel Craig, who played iconic British spy James Bond in the movie.
Eva Green is always being asked questions about Daniel Craig.
The stunning actress starred alongside the British hunk in the James Bond film ‘Casino Royale’ and says women now can’t stop asking her questions to find out what he’s really like.
Eva – whose character Vesper Lynd had a romance with the suave spy – said: ‘They ask me about Daniel Craig, Daniel Craig, blah, blah, blah. When people come up to me in the street all they want to know about is Daniel Craig. Was he good looking, was he great to work with? He was, of course. As much as I joke about it, I do love my association with James Bond. It was a brilliant movie.’
The French beauty also admitted she was worried about taking the role because she didn’t fit the usual stereotype for female characters in the movie franchise and had to be forced into auditioning.
She added: ‘I am not a Bond girl. But the role was not your typical James Bond female role. It wasn’t just sexy, I got lucky. My agent was very good in forcing me to do it. I wasn’t interested, but she forced me to read the script, and the character was a real character.’

Bond girl Eva Green insists she’s ‘not confident’ about her body – but you might beg to differ, given her latest sultry photoshoot.
The 29-year-old seemed to show no inhibitions when she posed naked for the latest edition of style bible Tatler, recreating a classic Seventies portrait of British actress Charlotte Rampling.
Sitting on a polished antique table in front of an ornately gilded mirror, the Casino Royale star has only a glass of wine for company as she mimics erotic photographer Helmut Newton’s 1973 memorable image.
One thing has changed through the decades, though – the pack of cigarettes behind Ms Rampling’s derriere has vanished, a nod to the fact smoking is no longer promoted as sexy.
Despite her protestations, this is not the first time Paris-born Ms Green has been naked in the line of duty.
Before starring as Vesper Lynd opposite Daniel Craig’s 007, she took a lead role in The Dreamers, a film by Last Tango In Paris director Bernardo Bertolucci that featured several explicit bedroom scenes.
Even though the role was her big-screen debut, Ms Green’s father and twin sister Joy refused to watch it.
The actress said: ‘They’re not in the business. They get confused.’
And she admitted: ‘I felt a bit ill when I saw it. I’m not confident with my body.’
But she seems to have conquered her coyness for Tatler. Another image shows her wearing only a mink coat – again echoing a familiar theme from the work of German-born Newton, who died in 2004.
His 1973 photograph of Ms Rampling for Vogue magazine – taken at the Hotel Nord Pinus II in Arles, near Marseilles, and titled The Sexiest Woman In The World – firmly sealed her reputation as a sex symbol.
Ms Green thinks she is unlikely to earn the same plaudits.
‘I opened a magazine the other day and they called me the worst-dressed person in the world,’ she said.
‘And I was like, “I like that dress.”’
Well, at least no one can criticise what she’s wearing in this latest picture …
* The full interview is in December’s issue of Tatler, out on Thursday.
