Retrospective Film Series: The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie
Thursday, October 24, 2019, 07:00pm

The next installment in the 1969 retro film series of the Springfield Free Public Library will be a screening of The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie at 7:00 PM on Thursday, October 24. The film is based on the novel of the same name by Muriel Spark and stars Maggie Smith in the title role as a teacher at a school for girls in Edinburgh whose pedagogical methods are both unorthodox and more than a little questionable. Fans of Maggie Smith from her recent appearances in Downton Abbey may enjoy seeing a much younger Dame Smith perform in the role that won her an Academy Award for best actress.
