The Chalk Garden
The Chalk Garden is a British film from 1964, adapted from a stageplay of the same name from nearly a decade prior. A concerned grandmother decides to hire a sketchy governess to oversee the development of Laurel, her erratic grandchild. Laurel has a fiery temper that has caused more than one governess to leave in a flurry of emotion and tears, coupled with a strange ressentiment toward her mother. All spoken dialogue in The Chalk Garden is delivered in British English.
