Laura Allen plays one of the 5 students (Julia Stiles, Kirsten Dunst,
Maggie Gyllenhaal & Ginnifer Goodwyn are the other four) who become very
close to Julia Roberts' character over the school year. "Susan is one of
Betty's (Kirsten Dunst) best friends. She's the 'second in command' in Betty's
clique, a woman rooted in the traditions of a 1950's pre-feminist Wellesley,
and helps out in the fight against Katherine" says Laura. "Through the art
history classes and Katherine's inspiration, she begins to see the world differently.
She becomes torn between her loyalty to Betty and her respect for Katherine."

Set in 1953, Katherine Watson (Roberts) is a free-spirited graduate of UC Berkeley.
She accepts a teaching post at the "female only" Wellesley College. The students are
torn between the repressive mores of the era and their longing for intellectual freedom.

Here are a few clips that I have of Laura, taken from the movie trailer:
