Tanner Hall is a 2009 drama film that centers on four girls coming-of-age in boarding school. It was written and directed by Tatiana von Fürstenberg and Francesca Gregorini. It stars Brie Larson, Amy Ferguson, Rooney Mara, Georgia King, Tom Everett Scott, Amy Sedaris, Chris Kattan, and Shawn Pyfrom.
As Fernanda (Rooney Mara) enters her senior year at Tanner Hall—a sheltered boarding school in New England—she's faced with unexpected changes in her group of friends when a childhood acquaintance, the charismatic yet manipulative trouble-maker Victoria (Georgia King), appears. Shy and studious, Fernanda is usually the voice of reason among her friends-adventurous and sexy Kate (Brie Larson) and tomboy Lucasta (Amy Ferguson). Jealous of Fernanda's exciting relationship, Victoria begins to sabotage Fernanda's plans and plots to publicly humiliate her.

Tanner Hall, an independent film, is the second feature film for von Fürstenberg and Gregorini, the first being Teddybear Crisis. The film had its world premiere at the IF3 International Freeski Film Festival in September 2009. It was also well received at the Hamptons Film Festival. It was picked up by Anchor Bay Films, a division of Anchor Bay Entertainment, although the release date has yet to be confirmed.
There was a sneak peek on April 12, 2010, at the Gen Art festival in New York. The film had trouble with distributors, but because of the casting of Rooney Mara in The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, Anchor Bay planned to release it in late 2011. The entire musical score and official soundtrack were written and produced by Cali P. and Inspired Media.
