Cracks (2009)

This is one of my favourite films, Eva Green's performance as Miss G, a sociopathic swimming instructor at an all girl's boarding school is enchanting and damn right wince worthy (in a good way). Miss G, is seen as an outlaw at the school, her tales of forbidden love and exotic countries have her pupils enraptured. Cracks is based on the novel by Sheila Kohler about a group of school girls whose lives are interrupted by the arrival of a beautiful and gifted Italian princess, who takes the sacred affection of Miss G away from them. The clothes and setting are downright dreamy, Juno Temple's performance is also fantastic. This film always inspires my wardrobe, as does Miss G's room I love the dark blue walls, with accents of gold. 

I want to copy the yellow ensemble.

The fabric rag in her hair is so cute.

Completely off her rocker, yet so chic.

My mum used to have a sewing machine like this.

The blue velvet, the blue walls, the gold fan, the clutter, adore!
