Summary Based on Muriel Spark's best-selling novel, the film earned a 1969 Best Actress Oscar for its star Maggie Smith. An inspiration to the young girls she teaches, and a challenge to the 1932 Edinburgh school which retains her services, the headstrong Jean Brodie (Smith) encourages fiercely independent thinking in her 12 year-old charges, who she influences with her over-romanticised world view. As she engages in ongoing battles with the school's rigid heads and bewilders two men in love with her, Miss Brodie also faces the biggest trial of her life when her career and livelihood become threatened
