Annabelle is the wise-beyond-her-years newcomer to an exclusive Catholic girls school. Having been expelled from her first two schools she's bound to stir some trouble.

When Annabelle goes to Simone's room after the day at the beach, in the first shot of Simone staring at the ceiling the bedside clock is clearly reading 11:29. The scene cuts back to Annabelle starting to knock on the door then hesitating and leaving. The next shot, again of Simone, shows the clock reading 11:24, a jump backward in time. See more »
So how's it going with Miss Bradley?
Nothing's *going* with Miss Bradley.
I had a crush on her when I was a freshman. I'm not gay though, I'm into guys too. Michelle Peters was obsessed with her, she used to write her notes and shit in class.
I'm not obsessed with her.
But you like her though.

Whoever marked this film close to 7 must have been gay. And I am serious here. As movies go, neither the acting nor the plot made any sense. It felt like a student movie about lesbian relationships in catholic schools. I am not saying that the acting was bad, it just didn't add up. And the plot is ludicrous.
I understand this type of movie making when you are talking documentaries or biographies or films based on real events. There you can't really make an interesting and captivating story because you have to stick to history, but not here, especially when the main story is the love between a literature teacher and her student in a classy and expensive private school. One just expects more subtlety, a more elaborate plot, some sort of moral.
Bottom line: one just gets bored watching it. The only way you could possibly enjoy this is if the film relates to a personal story of a similar category, like a crush on a teacher or some forbidden girl love episode. If this film meant something for the movie maker, it certainly did not manage to relay the same feelings to the viewer.
