OPENS: Friday 10/9
Anarchy rules in this kooky British comedy! When an inspector (Colin Firth) threatens to close their all-girls private school, the anything-but-saintly students (including Mischa Barton) begin brewing booze illegally to help get their headmistress (Rupert Everett in drag) out of debt. Stay through the final credits for Firth and Everett's campy same-sex duet "Love Is in the Air." A scream!
