Mona Lisa Smile is a 2003 drama film about a free-thinking art professor who teaches conservative 50's Wellesley girls to question their traditional societal roles.
The title is a reference to the Mona Lisa, the famous painting by Leonardo da Vinci, and the song of the same name, originally performed by Nat King Cole, which was covered by Seal for the movie.
Julia Roberts received a record $25 million for her performance—the highest ever earned by an actress at that time.
