When a schoolgirl's whisper spreads it triggers a chain of events with extraordinary consequences. Karen Wright (Keira Knightley) and Martha Dobie (Elisabeth Moss) run a girls' boarding school in 1930s New England, where they become entangled in a devastating story of deceit, shame and courage. Banned in London and several cities across America, The Children's Hour received its world premiere on Broadway in 1934. Generations on, its potent exploration of a culture of fear remains startlingly relevant.

  2. Very interesting. Unfortunately, it's a broadway show, not a movie film. Anyhow, there was a movie of the same title in 1961 starred by Audrey Hepburn, Shirley MacLaine and James Garner.

  3. I hadn't heard of this before and am so glad you shared it as it sounds absolutely fascinating.
