At the start of “Tanner Hall,” studious, responsible Fernanda (Rooney Mara) is entering her senior year at a leafy boarding school in New England. Pretty soon her classmates, especially the troublesome, manipulative Victoria (Georgia King), complicate her life. By entering into a sexually-tinged relationship with a married man (Tom Everett Scott), Fernanda does plenty to complicate her own life as well.
See the film, if you must, for Mara, who will be starring in the upcoming Hollywood remake of “The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo.” She’s a sharp, vigilant actress whose career bears watching. Grade: C+ (Rated R for sexual content including brief nudity and some drug use.)
