It’s been nearly two years since the film’s release in the UK, but the remake of St. Trinian’s has finally arrived in theaters stateside. Set in an unruly girls’ school, the film stars a laundry list of British film actors like Rupert Everett, Colin Firth, Russell Brand, Stephen Fry, Gemma Arterton, Talulah Riley, Tamsin Egerton, Juno Temple, Lena Headey and Jodie Whittaker. Mischa Barton also makes a brief cameo.

The St. Trinian’s franchise has a long history in British pop culture. In the 1940s, illustrator Ronald Searle created the St. Trinian’s cartoon series about a fictional girls’ school constantly teetering on the edge of anarchy. Those cartoons became celebrated films in the 1950s, starting with The Belles of St. Trinian’s in 1954. Comic actor Alistair Sim played the school headmistress Miss Fritton (in full drag) and her brother Clarence.
