The Trouble with Angels
Ida Lupino’s breezy, all-women coming-of-age comedy-drama, starring Rosalind Russell and Hayley Mills.
Dir Ida Lupino
With Rosalind Russell, Hayley Mills, June Harding, Binnie Barnes
As far from The Hitch-Hiker as one could get, this breezy, all-women coming-of-age comedy-drama, centres on the adventures of two somewhat rebellious students (Mills and Harding) in a Catholic boarding school. Of a strong cast, Rosalind Russell steals the laurels as the Mother Superior, while the blend of dry humour and sympathetic observation makes the film both touching and amusing.
