Notes on a Scandal
I'm smaller but tougher than you!
This award-winning movie is set at a posh London school, where an elderly teacher looks down her nose at most other people. When a new young woman joins the staff, the matron decides to give her some tips on dealing with the kids. To her horror, she later learns that the young woman is having an affair with one of the 15 year old boys. When attempts to kill the relationship fail, the elderly woman puts plan B into action, which has far-reaching implications for all concerned.
