WEST COAST PREMIERE
Eddie Izzard and Dame Judi Dench star in this thrilling Hitchcockian homage to British spy cinema. In the summer of 1939, influential families in Nazi Germany have sent their daughters to a finishing school in an English seaside town to learn the language and be ambassadors for a future looking National Socialism. One of the professors soon uncovers their diabolical scheme and races to raise the alarm. But the authorities believe he is the problem. Filled with breathtaking cinematography and top notch acting, this taut, heart-racing espionage film remains a timely tale of the importance of standing up to evil whatever the cost may be.
