The Prime Of Miss Jean Brodie (P.S.)
At the staid Marcia Blaine School for Girls, in Edinburgh, Scotland, teacher extraordinaire Miss Jean Brodie is unmistakably, and outspokenly, in her prime. She is passionate in the application of her unorthodox teaching methods, in her attraction to the married art master, Teddy Lloyd, in her affair with the bachelor music master, Gordon Lowther, andùmost importantùin her dedication to her girls, the students she selects to be her cr_me de la cr_me. Fanatically devoted, each member of the Brodie setùEunice, Jenny, Mary, Monica, Rose, and Sandyùis famous for something, and Miss Brodie strives to bring out the best in each one. Determined to instill in them independence, passion, and ambition, Miss Brodie advises her girls, Safety does not come first. Goodness, Truth, and Beauty come first. Follow me. And they do. But one of them will betray her.
