Neglected for almost 70 years, OLIVIA is a remarkable work by one of France’s ground-breaking female filmmakers, Jacqueline Audry. Set in a gothic (somewhat reminiscent of Hitchcock’s REBECCA) 19th century boarding school for young girls, and while not addressing lesbianism directly, it is the story of the two mistresses of the house, their competition for the affections of their students, and the students discovery of the dangerous game of love and attraction.
