  2. I guess Judi Dench as a teacher of english (Thomas?!) didn't make it easy for the girls of those high ranking nazis. Dangerous job, dangerous situation, great actress!

    1. The story is actually set before the war, when the members of the German Nazi party were sending their daughters to UK to learn English where the teacher gradually realizes what is gonna happen and what the Nazis are actually planning.
