Doggon English Teacher!
18 December 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A woman who professed that she was abducted by aliens, finds her picture posted in a tabloid, leading to great embarrassment. Unfortunately, it really happened, but, of course, she is seen as a nut case by everyone, including her daughter. There is a lot of sparring between the two as the mother goes through a sort of living hell. She has horrible dreams, recreating the horrible incident in her mind, screaming at night. Meanwhile, the daughter, who is now an outcast, has been embraced by her English teacher, who is getting her straightened out. Her grades have been going up. The kicker is that the mother has seen this guy in her dreams, believing him to be a fellow abductee. This all plays out somewhat interestingly, but it's not all that captivating.
