Mary talks about not knowing what fun was before, "like Dr. Spock," rather than Mr. Spock. She is apparently paraphrasing a statement by the iconic character in Star Trek: This Side of Paradise. See more »
What do you think you're doing?
I'm teaching, Miss Bannet, what you should've been doin'.
Out of my classroom! You will go to Miss Vaughn's, and explain why you are not in my class, and suffer the consequences.

Another great movie by Léa Pool (La Demoiselle sauvage, Emporte-moi).
This is not a lesbian-film, it's a film about love, about the happiness and the pain that goes with it. It's a true and poignant movie, but also very evocative and profound. The acting is excellent by the three lead characters: Piper Perabo, Jessica Paré and Mischa Barton. They're really in it. Because you see, almost everybody, sometimes in their life, get through a period like these girls are going. Who hasn't been completely shattered by a relationship that's going nowhere or simply doesn't lift up? Funny parts too: especially those with the gardener offering some words of advice to Mouse. Léa Pool makes also good use of the slow-motion to describe the pain, the emotion, the passion. In all, a movie that should be seen.
Seen at the Devonshire Odeon Cinema, in Windsor (Ontario), on August 21st, 2001.
