FILM: St. Trinian's Sequel

You may not have heard about this quirky British film, St. Trinian's, but you should definitely try to rent it before the sequel comes out.

The story is about private school girls (Mischa Barton, Gemma Arterton, model Lily Cole, etc.) who put the boys of Animal House to shame. Maybe they don't drink profusely and strut around in dirty underwear, but they drive the adults of this film crazy with their wild antics, juvenile pranks, and unladylike behavior. St Trinian's is their home--their sanctuary where they can be free to do whatever they want. So when the school goes bankrupt and an uptight official (Colin Firth) tries to enforce new regulations, it's up to them to save it by organizing a heist with one of their teachers (Russell Brand from Forgetting Sarah Marshall). Watch the trailer:

For the sequel, they get a little Goonies-ish, when they go on a treasure hunt after they learn that their headmistress is related to pirates. It sounds childish, but I promise you that it'll be pretty damn funny. Especially since their headmistress is Rupert Everett (My Best Friend's Wedding) drag.
