Poster for The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie

The mighty Maggie Smith earned her first Academy Award in this 1969 British film playing a headstrong teacher in a private school in 1930s Edinburgh who ignores the curriculum and influences her impressionable 12-year-olds with her over-romanticised world view.

The movie loses some steam when it turns to romantic melodrama, but Smith keeps you watching to see how she works with it.
