It is an oddity of sorts, as it stars Colin Firth (Brigitte Jones' Diary, The King's Speech) in the sort-of role of wicked warden, Rupert Everett (My Best Friend's Wedding, The Madness of King George) in drag as the school's headmistress, Russell Brand (Get Him to the Greek, Katy Perry's vagina) as a second rate criminal, and a flock of girls some of which are known to American audiences. There is model Lily Cole (Doctor Who, The Imaginarium of Dr. Parnassus), Gemma Arterton (Prince of Persia, Quantum of Solace), and Mischa Barton (The Sixth Sense, The O.C.). Also, we have an appearance by Stephen Fry (Blackadder the Second, V for Vendetta, The Hobbit)
Annabelle Fritton (Talulah Riley) is our good girl. Her father places her in St. Trinian's after some trouble at her previous school, and for nefarious reasons of his own. She is well aware of St. Trinian's reputation and not at all happy about attending.

In all, this is a fun, silly movie. Don't look for anything too magical. It has some good jokes, lots of hot girls, and a twist on a classic premise. Well worth checking out. No serious nudity or language issues that I remember, as it is rated PG-13.
