I hadn’t even heard of “Cracks” before today and after watching the trailer and reading the synopsis, I’m wondering when I’ll get the chance to see it. Directed by Jordan Scott (the spawn of Ridley Scott who also produced the film alongside his brother Tony), “Cracks” looks like it has a nice “Picnic at Hanging Rock” vibe to it although the plot seems like a dark, twisted version of “Dead Poets Society”. The film also stars Eva Green being all sexy and mysterious. I like all of these things. The trailer leaves the details of the plot a bit fuzzy so I’ve also included a brief synopsis as well as the poster which also went online today. Check out this “Hanging Rock”-“Dead Poets”-Sexy/Mysterious Eva Green-hybrid after the jump.

For those just tuning in (like myself), here’s a brief synopsis:
Within the confines of a strict, all-girls English boarding school (circa 1930s), a clique students participate on the swim team not only to pass the time, but to be close to their swimming instructor, the enigmatic, yet charismatic, Miss G (Eva Green). While Miss G originally encourages their idolization and crack (crush) on her, the teachers attention is quickly focused on the arrival of an exotic and beautiful Spanish foreign pupil, Fiamma (María Valverde). As the new girl rebuffs her classmates, and further rejects Miss Gs interest, her teammates begin to grow jealous of Miss Gs fascination with Fiamma, and resent the latters distain of their instructor, accumulating in the inexplicable disappearance of Fiamma.
