St Trinians - School Can be A Riot
St Trinian's is in crisis! The notorious school for young 'ladies' has been threatened with closure and needs to find funds, fast. A whole host of ungovernable and downright unruly pranksters (and that includes the teachers) are game on to pull off the heist of the century.
Their plan? Steal an extremely famous painting from the National Gallery. Right under the noses of the authorities, of course. But can their combined cunning and total lack of shame save the day before school is out - for good?
The St Trinian's girls are in a league of their own; smart, fearless and determined to defend the school they love to the end.
Review: St Trinian's is not your regular high school movie on bad girls, in fact the whole school is rotten down to it's core. St Trinian's Headmistress Camilla values each student for their unique abilities, so when the school is hit with financial hardship it's up to the teachers and students to come up with an elaborate plan save them all. Hilarious, misguided and completely entertaining, St Trinian's is full of outstanding performances.
