Better Than The 1969 Movie
27 September 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I really enjoyed seeing this on PBS. I didn't like the 1969 movie, due to nudity. It was rated PG, however with the nude scene it should have been X. This mini TV series tells about a Girls school. Ms. Brodie was a teacher the girls admired. She took them to the Ballet, served them tea and got them interested in the arts. They should release this mini series to DVD. I'm sure other people would be interested in this program. Dorothy a girl who was interested in the arts had a strict Father, who beat her with a belt. All because she broke the china doing head stands. I give this mini series "A+." I just hope someday that it will be released so everyone can enjoy these type of educational programs sponsored by PBS.
