The plot of the series

The series “Pretty Little Liars” is the story about ex-girlfriends charming schoolgirls Spencer, Aria, Hanna and Emily. They have become victims of their own intrigues and anonymous messages from a mysterious stranger. He knows too many secrets that keep these girls in tension.

The action takes place in a small town called Rosewood. Four young high school student Spencer, Aria, Hanna and Emily lead an active social life within the walls of the local school. Once upon a time there were five of them, but after the next party Alison disappears. A year later, the girls have to reunite their beloved company, as each of them receives mysterious messages from anonymous “E”. It would seem that the answer is obvious – only missing girl knew so many details about the secret lives of their friends, but the body of the deceased Alison was found in a pit in the vicinity of Rosewood, and the circle of suspects is getting wider every day. Spencer is in love with her sister’s boyfriend, and is not going to stop doing her staff, until she gets what she wants. Aria dreams about her teacher of English, whom she accidentally meets in a bar. Emily constantly mocks a new girl in school – Maya. Hannah makes absolutely horrible things to preserve and enhance her beauty: she is obsessed with the idea of being perfect. But the most important thing is that they all have one big secret that is associated with the time when their best friend Alison dissapeared. It can destroy the lives of each of them … This “E” is aware of literally everything connected with these girls, all their innermost secrets…



Of all the movies that exist about student’s life this one is a pioneer in its genre. National Lampoon is the name of the revolutionary American humor magazine, that was on the rise in the 70’s. Back then its mention was a guarantee of success. It is not surprising that a movie about two rival fraternities hit the box-office despite its small budget. John Landis filmed this movie, thereby took his step in the history of comedy forever.

One of the producers was the Ivan Reitman, and one of the scriptwriters – National Lampoon writer Chris Miller, who drew inspiration from his own adventures. The movie invented, in fact, the whole film structure where people party to the death as well as the cliché of the provoking humor. To put it simply, this is a dream of most students that came true, the dream about vdiverse life in college, which, incidentally, does not spoil person’s future.



A naive, but inspiring story about the power of progressive views. Young teacher Anne Watson works in the American College of Art Wellesley, but it turns out that conservative local orders are contrary to her idealism. She is forced to indulge in the patriarchal idea that marriage is more important than education rather than inspire her students to do great things. Despite her outstanding talents, students are of the same conservative opinion, but 50s are not eternal! Thanks to the efforts of Miss Watson, one by one, students begin to get the idea that women have no less talents than men, and certainly have the right to be independent and to follow their dreams. “Mona Lisa Smile” is a feminist Christmas tale, which brought together Julia Roberts, Kirsten Dunst, Julia Stiles and Maggie Gyllenhaal.



Another film about the power of female friendship, multiplied by study and faith in yourself. “Pitch Perfect” so successfully maneuvers among the pitfalls of the genre, and it has got an army of fans, and even a sequel. The plot sounds like the plot for fans of the show “The Voice”, but the audience of this film is much broader. The group of students organizes a cappella group to compete with other colleges. Girls sing in a nice and clean manner, but the main thing is not this. The main heroine, played by Anna Kendrick, Rebel Wilson and excellent jokes. Much of the success of the film is due to the handiwork of the director Elizabeth Banks.
