Good premise, good nerve, but fails to deliver
4 August 2013 | by (Norway) – See all my reviews

A young history teacher is being set-up by a student and his care-giving uncle, which takes pictures of she and the student hugging. It's a set-up, but the student is having second thoughts. But things are even worse...

This is obviously a Canadian TV-movie with production values as one. But with a good idea, and good enough to keep you interested. Though the actors are good, I'm afraid it shines through that something is lacking for this to be really good. A bit cheesy music and happy ending, as you know there won't be a sequel, which nowadays ruins many endings.

The actors do a good job, especially Erik Knudsen, who plays the student. He acts like he really is an troubled orphan on the wrong side of the law, and is able to not overplay.

I see this is bashed by some reviewers here, but more than it deserves. Due to the idea and the drive of the story I think it deserves a pretty good review by me. I was entertained so much that it's easy to see through the flaws. He film could have been way better with more time spent on the ending.
