Prim schoolteacher Miss Meadows (Katie Holmes) is not entirely what she appears. Well-mannered, sweet, and caring, yes, but underneath the candy-sweet exterior hides the soul of a vigilante, taking it upon herself to right the wrongs in this cruel world by whatever means necessary. Things get complicated, however, when Miss Meadows gets romantically entangled with the town sheriff (James Badge Dale) and her steadfast moral compass is thrown off, begging the question: "Who is the real Miss Meadows and what is she hiding?" Written by Unknown

Did You Know?


The lead characters are often only referred to by their surname (Miss Meadows) or profession (Sheriff) but dialogue exchanges in the film reveal their first names to be Mary and Mike, respectively. See more »


Miss Meadows continually refers to the officer as "Sheriff." Typically there is one Sheriff in a county, often elected, and he is seldom out on the street. Each of the officers under him is referred to as "Deputy" or by their rank. Just prior to the 42 minute point, there is even a close up of his badge showing that he is one of the many "Deputy Sheriffs," not the Sheriff himself. See more »

Sweet, Dark and Entertaining!

The trailer for Miss Meadows is quite captivating. Why else would we watch a Katie Holmes movie?

So it was with great pleasure last night, that my husband and I got to see the full film.

Starting off with a fun little scene that highlights some Disney princess qualities, humored by some twisted dark comedy, we are soon drawn into the secret little world of Miss Meadows, a primary school substitute teacher who moonlights as a small town vigilante happy to clean up the streets and look pretty doing it!

There is enough decent scenes to keep you watching, although while I felt myself drifting off half way through, my husband was wide eyed and hooked. Personally, I thought it would make an incredible short film.

With its description you would imagine some great action and violence, almost like the female version of the Equalizer, but instead and quite obviously in the hands of a lady director, we get a toned down version with more dark humor on kills and a very artsy looking film with plenty of drama.

Miss Meadows is not perfect by any means, but it is a fun film to watch and definitely worth a go...
