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.

To faint-hearted US citizens - who tend to pass out or cry havoc at the mere sight of a female nipple - this decidedly tepid tale of a 17-year-old lesbian girl falling in love with her 40-ish teacher and dragging her into bed might have SCANDAL written all over it; to more enlightened people, it's simply shallow and, even at its b-movie running time of 76 minutes, immensely boring. The muddled, underwritten script works strictly on the level of a high-school play, driving home its well-worn messages (true love will find a way to overcome even the greatest obstacles, heterosexual men are selfish bastards and bad in bed to boot) with all the subtlety of a poorly greased jackhammer. And while the acting is okay, some scenes - such as the kissing-in-the-swimming-pool bit - look as cheesy as if they were lifted straight from "The L Word" or a soft-core lesbian sex flick; how director Katherine Brooks managed to hire people like Elizabeth Shue, Will Patton and the ever-magnificent Frances Conroy for her latest effort ("Waking Madison") is beyond me. Finally, the climactic (no pun intended) sex scene is actually very tame and never goes beyond European prime-time TV standards, so, dear kids and guardians of public morals, there's really nothing to worry about.
Contrary to some of the comments here, the film doesn't encourage, let alone propagate "pedophilia" (which generally stands for the sexual abuse of a child, a category a sexually active and aggressive 17-year-old hardly qualifies for in my book) but mostly plays like a chin-up movie for young lesbians about to come out.
