Synopsis

#123movies #fmovies #putlocker #gomovies #solarmovie #soap2day Watch Full Movie Online Free – 18-year-old Louise is stuck in a run-down girls’ boarding school in the heart of the English countryside. Her only consolation, during the long cold nights, is Matthew, the American art teacher and second husband of the headmistress, Veronica Van Huet. Trouble is, half term is looming and Louise cannot bear the thought of being away from her lover for a whole week. So she persuades Veronica to let her remain at school, ostensibly to do extra study for her exams. The holiday begins and the vast Victorian building is a spooky shell without the other pupils. Louise and Matthew grab the first opportunity to be together, but in their haste expose in every way their intimate relationship. Veronica, despite her considerable hurt and anger, does not expel Louise from the school, as she is acutely aware that her husband is the one truly responsible. She is also keen not to have a row with Matthew as she needs him now more than ever. In a conspiracy with the school’s doctor, Veronica and Matthew are planning a major art fraud in a desperate attempt to raise money to save the school. But marital harmony is short-lived when Veronica discovers something far more painful about her husband’s love for Louise…
Plot: Louise (Sophia Myles) is an alienated boarding school student in the midst of a hot and heavy affair with the husband of her headmistress, Veronica (Sophie Ward). Suspicion and passion hang in the air of the isolated campus until Matthew (George Asprey) suddenly disappears. Fearing the worst, Louise struggles to uncover what happened to her lover, but is foiled at every turn by Veronica, who begins to take a sadistic glee in the psychological torment she inflicts upon her. When a mysterious woman appears around the campus, Louise becomes convinced that she is being framed for the murder of Matthew, or even worse, being set up to be the next victim. Alone and friendless, Louise must keep herself alive long enough to uncover the truth of Mathew”s disappearance.

A timid approach spoils a promising thriller
The headmistress of an all-girl boarding school discovers her art-teacher husband is having an affair with a pupil. The husband disappears leaving his wife and the girl alone in the rambling old-school buildings during a school break.On paper this sounds like a good premise for a creepy thriller. In reality what we get is a series of unlikely killings, red-herrings a-plenty and an uneven tone that never pulls the viewer in to the story.

The biggest problem is the timid, anaemic direction for which writer Merlin Ward himself must take the blame. This is clearly a case of failing to identify the target audience. Is this an afternoon TV movie or a late-night thriller? In trying to hedge his bets Ward misses both targets. Clearly frightened of “Lolita” comparisons, he has Sophia Myles portray the schoolgirl at the heart of the story as the blandest of blondes. In similar vain, he makes only the merest of hints as to why headmistress Veronica Van Huet (an otherwise excellent performance by Sophie Ward) would not have had the girl expelled immediately.

The ending piles on the unlikely events thick and fast but fails to provide a satisfying explanation for them.

In truth it’s probably not as bad as I’ve made it sound, but it is unsatisfying to see a missed opportunity to make a better movie. If only the Coen Brothers had been in charge this could have been a first-rate black comedy.

British Poison Ivy knockoff.
CAUTION: Possible plot spoilers present.

In the remote girl’s boarding school of Lady Margaret Oaks, young student Louise Thompson is having an affair with the artist husband of the headmistress Veronica Van Huet. The affair is discovered but Veronica forgives Louise, inviting her to stay in the school over the holidays in order to work on school play that she had been setting up. At the same time, Veronica’s husband, Matthew Van Huet is under increasing pressure to forge his artist father’s signature on his own works in order to gain more funds for the school. But one day Matthew disappears without trace. Alone in the foreboding mansion & with only Veronica & her doctor friend for company, Louise begins to suspect that Matthew is probably dead & that Veronica is responsible.

Out of Bounds is a cheap but relatively classy British thriller that was made as sort of a British version of POISON IVY with a few touches of SINGLE WHITE FEMALE thrown in for narrative kicks. The film is directed by Merlin Ward & stars his wife Sophie as the “evil” headmistress.

The film is something of an obscure effort – copies of the film are hard to find & it hasn’t been widely seen. But having said that, Out of Bounds is actually quite interesting in its own right. The script has clearly been written to accommodate a low budget – singular location for most of the running time; very few actors; little in the way of effects & so on. Ward does a reasonable job of conducting suspense on this shoestring budget & even gets in a few good twists, although the end revelation that George Asprey faked his death in order to get back at his wife is a little anticlimactic. The acting is good for the film’s type, with Sophia Myles & Sophie Ward making a good team & Celia Imrie has a wonderfully polite but nasty underneath demeanor that will send shivers down your spine.
