Miss Jean Brodie is a rare breed of teacher, passionate, independent-minded and romantically inspired, with not the slightest care for convention. Small surprise then that she soon garners a devoted following of six young girls, who will become known as the Brodie set. But in time Brodie is also revealed to be an individual with an intense desire to control and mould her girls into mini Brodies. Beneath the façade of this self-possessed woman lie dark truths about both her personality - not least a desire to initiate her girls into the adult world of sex - and a keen interest in Fascism.
