The Prime of Jean Brodie

The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie explores the relationships between teachers and students and how they build and destroy one another. Ms. Brodie is very popular with her students, and some of her colleagues - but not with the principal. The students serve as the pawns in this political and emotional chess match, but these pawns have minds of their own when they get involved in adult games.

The town of FuenteOvejuna is run by a rapacious and cruel overlord, Commander Guzmán.

Escaping Guzman’s clutches, Laurencia galvanizes the town to finally extract their revenge, but at what price?

The three Prozorov sisters lived a grand life with their father, so once he passes, they yearn for something magical to transform their seemingly ordinary lives in a small town: work, love and moving to Moscow! When the regiment comes to town, there's hope for something greater - but even as they find what they think they want, it's not enough, turning the home into a place where passions and tempers fly, creating heartbreak and frustration.
