After WWI, with England in the midst of a depression, Sarah Burton returns to her hometown as headmistress, full of ambition, determined to create a school that will inspire all of her students.

When Sarah Burton returns to her hometown as headmistress, she is full of ambition, determined to create a great school and to inspire her girls to take all they can from life. But in the aftermath of the First World War, the country is in depression and ideals are hard won.

In 1930s Yorkshire, a spirited new headmistress brings inspiration and modern ideas to an all girls' school and shakes up the more conservative-minded residents of South Riding (imdb).

Set after the First World War whilst England is in the midst of a depression. Sarah Burton returns to her hometown as headmistress, full of ambition, determined to create a great school and to inspire her girls to take all they can from life but ideals are difficult to sustain.

Good actors and acting. Good cinematography. However, the story line is too dark and depressing.
