We mark the centenary of the birth of beloved Scottish writer Dame Muriel Spark (1918-2006) with a screening of the most celebrated film adaptation of her work. Oscar-winning Maggie Smith gives one of the defining performances of her career as Jean Brodie, a headstrong, unconventional teacher at a private school in 1930s Edinburgh. Smith captures the haughty grandeur and vulnerability of a complex force of nature, who proves a dangerous influence on the impressionable minds of her beloved ’gels’.
This film is touring as part of Muriel Spark 100, a cross-artform national programme celebrating her life and literary achievements.
